I'm thinking more of support.  For example we dump all our databases
nightly and back them up using a shell script.  If we were doing it on a
table basis, the presence of '$' might cause issues.  Your open source
will live on a system, not in isolation, that's what I am concerned about.
However, if it makes your job much easier in python then go for it.  In,
perl at least we can work around it.
