For increasing readability/explicitness you can use a name convention
(UPPER_CASE), comments and documentation.
As for increasing confidence that your
variables-intended-to-be-constants wouldn’t get reassigned, you can use
read-only properties. This is a tricky to implement read-only properties
for modules, but see PEP 562 which should help to do this.
