barry_as_FLUFL is probably simply a joke future statement (Barry is at the head of Python Development and would probably replace Guido in the future) (Guido is typically only active on python-ideas).
from __future__ import braces is the Future statement (see http://docs.python.org/3/library/__future__.html)
import __future__ simply imports __future__.py as a plain, ordinary module
