Were there any practical implications by Hyperbole using `eval'?

As I am using heavily `eval' in my rcd-template package for template
interpolation, and people complain, like I should minimize it, but I
have no other way around it, I would like to ask if there were ever
any practical negative consequences by Hyperbole using `eval'?

It is if I guess well, decades old package, but maybe I am wrong,
decades are passing quickly.

How I see it here, it is frequently used. Of course, it allows
execution of any Lisp expression by various means.

But were there any problematic issues ever? 

I believe that code is well written, and I don't refer to code, I
rather ask if anybody complained or if anything practical, like users'
data was reported to be destroyed by incorrect `eval'.
