Is there a way to tell Python that, syntactically, this thing that
looks like a number is really a name? Or am I just being dumb?

(Don't hold back on that last question. "Yes" is a perfectly
acceptable answer. But please explain which of the several
possibilities is the way I'm being dumb. Thanks!)

If you have a script that is self-programming (producing sequenced, numbered scripts 1.py 2.py 3.py) then why not just prefix an alpha character a1.py a2.py a3.py ?

Otherwise, are you just pulling our chain?    :)

On the other hand, if you open IDLE and then open the 1.py module (yes, that's a dumb name) and then click run--> run module it will import and run... assuming 1.py contains some valid python code.

Why must you have a numbered script?

You're just pulling someone's chain, right?
