Doing a search (which I'm too lazy to do) would yield some dozen or so threads on the matter.

A quick answer is this - symbolic references directly impact the symbol table. This could result in clobbering a variable you already have. As this is completely dependent on run-time activity, debugging this could be complex.

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.
