In the time, when everything was allowed what was not explicitely
forbidden, an easy way was necessary to forbid access. Jim
(and, therefore, Zope) used:

  anything starting with "_" is private: no DTML access, no Web access.

Now, with the change to a security policy "Everything is
forbidden when not explicitely allowed", the need for
such a rule based on naming dwindles. Maybe, it will disappear
sometime in the future.
