There's a lot of things that you shouldn't do that people do every day. To minimize risk, if you insist on having a '.' in your path, the most important thing is to put it at the _end_ of your path. This way, when you type a command, it will hopefully find the real command first. If it's at the beginning of your path, and you're on a multi-user system, you're just asking for trouble.
