Agreed... I suggested something like that a couple of days ago
(except assuming __main__ would be a builtin global instead of in
sys). I proposed __this__ as the name for accessing the current
module. Mainly because I like the Englishlike way it reads: "if
__this__ is __main__". 'If this is main' -- couldn't be simpler.
Though I'd also be fine with sys.__main__ or sys.main (I'd prefer the
latter). I would support having sys be an automatic global.
