It can't, unless you remove the A = 0 from the module and put it into 
some init function.

To quote myself:

This of course won't prevent __main__ to be existant, nor running possible
initialization code twice. But if the module is supposed to do some work,
it will operate on the one data all the other importing modules see.

You could of course delete everything in __main__ as well, but then...
why do you care about the __main__.A living?
