Consider providing a hook to a function that converts non-conforming
field names (ones with a leading underscore, leading digit, non-letter,
keyword, or duplicate name).

class NamedTupleReader:
    def __init__(self, f, fieldnames=None, restkey=None, restval=None,
                 dialect="excel", fieldnamer=None, *args, **kwds):
                 . . .

I'm going to either post a recipe to do the renaming or provide a static
method for the same purpose.   It might work like this:

  >>> renamer(['abc', 'def', '1', '_hidden', 'abc', 'p', 'abc'])
  ['abc', 'x_def', 'x_1', 'x_hidden', 'x_abc', 'p', 'x1_abc']
