IIRC, it was more along the lines of: all private names should be underscored.  The difference being that we get to choose whether currently non-underscored names should get underscored, should be deprecated and then underscored, or should be made public, put into __all__, and properly documented.

I think there was general agreement that leaving them non-underscored but expecting people to treat them as private wasn't a good idea.
