[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
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.
