Will python never intend to support private, protected and public?

I would not accept a car that does constraint my driving directions. I 
want to drive for myself, because its fun.

Remember, its Python not Java.
Tastes are different and so are programming languages, but please do not 
make Python to a Java Clone.

I love python because of its simplicity, freedom, power and because its 
fun to program.
One reason is that it does not restrict the programer to tight und has 
genuine simple solutions, like the one with "private" instance variables.
