For my part, I like __universal__.  I was going to suggest 
__cosmological__ to leave space in case we need to put something between 
__global__ and (what is now called) __builtin__, but then I remembered the 
Galaxy Song, and thought of __galactic__ for that eventuality.

I wonder how much you could sell the naming rights for?  i.e. call it 
__[name of sponsor]__.  Python's pretty popular, such advertising should 
be worth something....

PS: I actually do like __universal__.  The rest may be somewhat addled.
