All variables defined inside a method of a class are private to
that method except ones declared global with the global statement.
The same applies to functions.
"Private" instance attributes can be created using the __XXX
convention, e.g. self.__privatevar = 1. These are only
useable for methods defined in the same class, not for methods
defined in subclasses.
