But can you be sure that you won't accidentally mistype something
that eval can read as valid code but that does something unexpected
- even if its only throw an apparently bizarre error dump at you...
Relying on eval() reading your database content as if it were Python
code - which is what it does - is a risky strategy.
But, heh, it's your data, your project, so as long as you understand
the risks then it's your decision. :-)
