Care to elaborate? This has always struck me as one of the more
nonsensical keyword choices in C, so I'd like to see some solid
justification before perpetuating it in Python (particular when C/C++
intuitions about statics being process global will hinder rather than
help in understanding the scope of this new namespace).
