So the solution is to validate user input. No need to throw the baby out with the bathwater. You'd have similar problems with using unvalidated input with SMTP or any other mechanism for sending mail.

Still, if the OP finds they can replace a significant chunk of their code with a well-maintained Perl module, that seems like a pretty clear good idea.
