IRL, I tend not to speak __ at all, I just say "def init self...". For
the rare cases when I have to make a distinction between, say, __foo__
and foo, I use stuff like "special foo" for "__foo__", "private foo"
for "__foo" or "protected foo" for "_foo".
But that is usually followed by a remark that one should really invent
better names ASAP.
