Sure, that would work.  I'm still thinking about "from __builtins__
import open".  Part of the issue there is that you might not be sure
/which/ open is causing the problems.  But I agree that this is not a
common case; I don't even think it would be common programming practice
(i.e. my use case is primarily debugging).


P.S. I don't actually poke _() into builtins :)
