Never ever ever eval strings. At some point you will end up eval'ing an
user-supplied string and hey presto - instant massive security
The original post is a bit crap, since no mention was made as to how the
dict was turned into a string. As to what he wants to do with this and
why he's doing it, that's likely the source of the real problem!
