No-one seems to have come out and said this yet (unless it was in one of 
those messages that no longer seem to be accessible on my ISP’s news 
server): Python has no provision for visibility control. That’s it. No 
public/private/protected or anything like that. Everything defined directly 
within a module or class is visible outside it using dir(module_or_class).
