As far as I'm concerned, I just don't care if they are "ugly" or not - 
FWIW, I never ever think of them in terms of "beauty" or "ugliness".

What I  do care about is that they simply and clearly convey a special 
meaning (just like the _single_leading_underscore names), and make sure 
you won't accidentaly override such a name.
