The documentation for custom management commands should mention how to exclude source files from being listed or used as management commands. I've confirmed that the dev docs do not mention this.
Looking at the (1.3) source code for django.core.management, I see that files prefixed with underscores ("_") are ignored or prevented from being considered as management commands.
Being able to do so is occasionally important, as when several commands depend on a helper class.
