I think like Ezio does.  Python covers itself by saying that all names starting 
and ending with two underscores are reserved, and documents those that are 
interesting for users.  On the other hand, many third-party 
frameworks/libs/apps invent their own __names__ (often for metadata, sometimes 
for custom protocols); I don’t know if a full list of existing names in the doc 
would have dissuaded them.
