Obviously my proposal can easily let arbitrary malicious code slip in. Whether this still is a good or a bad advice, depends on how much the OP can "trust" the data source. Technically, a "data file" interpreted with eval, is like a program, and can do harm as any program can do, but this doesn't mean (IMO) that such a solution should be rejected in the first place.
