The manual says that the P3-words (public, protected, private) are  
available, but not yet fully implemented.

But it is a good question as to why one can drop "fun" here.

It falls into the category of computer language quirks, or "gotchas"  
as they are called here:

It is a difficult topic. It's like older airplanes often had the flaps  
up and gears up controls side by side. When landing a plane one must  
look outside, and not at those controls. So every once in a while, a  
pilot would make a gears up instead of flaps up when on the ground,  
resulting in the need for an expensive repair. So modern airplanes  
usually don't have them side-by-side.
