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.
