General Development All the data stored in a Python program is built around the concept of an object. Objects include fundamental data types such as numbers, strings, lists, and dictionaries. It's also possible to create user-defined objects in the form of classes or extension types. This chapter describes the Python object model and provides an overview of the built-in data types.

i don't know C++ so i can't answer. however both python and C++ provide means by which namespaces can be kept isolated and managed... but it is not enforced. that is my understanding.

yeah... and no production language that is in wide deployment enforces namespaceing isolation (well... Java does, but Sun made tools to make it less crappy, and java got mind share because it was the first "compile once run anywhere" buzz phrase language so corps saw it as a way to give themselves out of lock in.
