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.
