[New-bugs-announce] [issue10386] token module should define __all__

New submission from Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net>:

The token module appears to be designed to be used with import *.  In fact it is used this way in the tokenize module.  However it does not define __all__ and as a result, from token import * leaks symbol "main":

>>> import tokenize
>>> tokenize.main.__module__

Attached patch adds token.__all__ and "modernizes" generation of the tok_name dictionary.

I also renamed main to _main because it is hard to imagine that any user code would ever want to use it.
