I grepped for this sequence before sending the previous email.  So while
theoretically there may be code out there that would be affected,
I don't think such code really exists in practice.

Actually, I'd probably have it return the same as now because this _
appears in the "middle" (well, the end) of a symbol.  This said, I do not
think there is this kind of code in the wild either,
