Is it bad practise to write __all__ like that

Why not? But you could even do

class AllList(list):
     """list which can be called in order to be used as a __all__-adding 
decorator"""
     def __call__(self, obj):
         """for decorators"""
         self.append(obj.__name__)
         return obj

__all__ = AllList()

@__all__
def api(): pass

@__all__
def db(): pass

@__all__
def input(): pass

@__all__
def output(): pass

@__all__
def tcl(): pass

HTH,
