Actually there is, the __builtin__ module:
<module '__builtin__' (built-in)>
And you can stick things inside it too:
>>> __builtins__.my_own_private_variable = "Hey, I'm a global!"
>>> def f():
... print my_own_private_variable
Hey, I'm a global!
But after learning this, forget about it: it is a very nice way to shoot
yourself painful death after painful death.
With my best regards,
