I knew it was a beehive, but I had hoped someone would know which  
version they were released, so I can put the proper statement into my  
tutorial (e.g. In version <foo>, Python provided some support for  
private variables...). I've been avoiding getting stung b/c I see  
both sides and have no preference for one vs. the other.
