__all__ warnings

Although Python doesn’t have support for private members, there are a couple of ways to indicate to developers that something shouldn’t be used. In addition to prefixing a method with an underscore, you can also explicitly specify public members with __all__. PyCharm can now warn you if you inadvertently use a member that’s excluded. Just be sure to enable the “Access to a protected member of a class or module” inspection in Settings | Editor | Inspections.
