Someone has a problem and tweaks a private variable as a workaround.

No python program will rely by definition on access to privat variables, 
it just lets the door open, just for the case that the program is not 
used in steril theoretical environment with a lot of flipcharts but in 
real dirty live with bugs, version conflicts, changing demands, ill 
spezifications, crazy public interfaces and so on.
