Private class and instance methods?

How often do people use methods beginning with __ in order to get some
amount of privacy with the automatic name mangling that occurs, to get
some kind of weak protection, with, say, accessor methods:
def __init__(self, x):
self.__x = x
def getX(self): return self.__x
def setX(self, x): self.__x = x
[which would of course allow C.getX and C.setX to do something different
in the future]?
