Const in python?

Wouldn't it be a nice idea to have constants in Python? I think when
programmers intend some of the variables to be const, the behavior
shouldn't be allowed to be altered. It would be nice to declare
'maxint' in sys to be a const rather than allowing programmers to
change the value and cause the program to fail as a result of this
change.
