I suppose yes, I'm "into that kind of thing", then. What can you

Having private variables does not preclude peering inside, you just
need accessors :-)

As per naming conventions discouraging modification... Some
users/programmers might see that as a challenge to overcome ;-)

But anyway, my question was because your "bad idea" comment seemed to
imply that private lexical variables were technically unsound, while
is just that you don't like the style. Fair enough.
