Depends on how you understand "perfectly usable." My collegue always 
carries his expensive racing bike to our office in the 3rd floor out of 
fear it may get wet or stolen. But I think this is not very convenient 
and I want to avoid discussions with our boss about skid marks on the 
carpet and things like that. Probably that collegue would not complain 
as well if he had to cast tuples to lists for counting items - you see, 
people are different ;-)
