Anything which reduces the readability of code is a bad thing.
One of the reasons I prefer Python to Perl and Tcl is it doesn't
insist on lots of strange hieroglyphs($,@,% etc) on its symbols.
Putting an 'r'(or should that be r'r'?!) in front of every
string is just making things that little bit less natural.
