Are you really trying to protect against yourself accidentally
invoking it or someone maliciously doing it?
I would probably give scrpt2 an obnoxious name like
htrerttcdrrthyyh.py or put it in an obscure directory. But if you
explain the rationale we might come up with something better.
How about naming it dontrunme.py ?
