That's highly poopy.  I guess you could do gymanstics like:

Python 2.3a2 (#1, Feb 19 2003, 20:06:49) 
[GCC egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> None = 'asdf'
<stdin>:1: SyntaxWarning: assignment to None
>>> __builtins__.__dict__['None'] = 'asdf'
>>> None
'asdf'

but at this point it's looking awfully ugly.
