Yes, but that are now all established features. It's OK to throw them in
the wild for the first time, but when they prove themselves successful and
re here to stay, and the language is close to be finished, I think it
makes no sense to leave the leading __, when it has a long history of
being used for non-standard extensions (not to mention the uglyness that
they bring to the code).
