'builtins' needs to be added as a module for __builtin__. A fixer will
also be needed.

Guido, is this something you really want to do?

To me, it just makes 2.6 more confusing to learn and it doesn't do much
in the way of simplifying the transition to 3.0.  The 2-to-3 tool can
take care of this trivially.

Brett meant to add 'builtins' as an alias for __builtin__.  I don't
think we should do that.  However we should have a fixer for this. 
Assigning to Collin and changing the subject to match.
