Identifiers starting with two underscores are reserved for the system,
you should use something else.

I forget the exact details, whether it is two underscores and uppercase
letters or two underscores plus anything, but I think it is the latter.
Identifiers starting with one underscore are reserved for file scope

In any case the moral of the story is: Unless you are writing libc or
the kernel, don't ever start identifiers with underscores.

And yes, everybody and his brother does this wrong.
