Revisiting: RE: Certifiable code

My question kinda got tangential answers. So let me try again with more
pure question:

Can we write code in Python that not only passes regulatory certification
but also could pass a more rigerous level (a level that would give most of
us here reasonable, although not absolute, confidence in the code) of
certification?

I like Python and want it to be one of, if not the, language of choice for
our code. However, I have worked enough with Python to know that if one
starts tinkering in its deeper world, the world where names have leading
and trailing underscores, that myserious code is very possible.

So I'm wondering whether one can limit the ways in which Python is used so
that it becomes more certifiable.
