Keyword Substitution in Scripts

If $Log$ appears anywhere in a script it would be expanded while CVS
checkin. Does anyone got in any troubles with this scenario yet? Though
chances are less as we always enlcose the variable name in brackets ( ie
$(Log) or ${Log} ) or keep it boldface ( LOG instead of Log ). But what can
be done if some programmer leaves it like $Log$someothervariable. I tried
with one of my scripts and CVS commit replaces it with Log message. If I
disable the keyword substitution then it is all other issue.
