injecting "set" into 2.3's builtins?

I use sets a lot in my Python 2.3 code at work and have been using this
hideous import to make the future move to 2.4's set type transparent:
x = set
from sets import Set as set
Of course, while it's transparent at one level (where sets are used) it's
not really transparent at another level (where the set object is defined).
I'm toying with the idea of adding this to the sitecustomize module at work:
__builtin__.set = sets.Set
del sets, __builtin__
I'm wondering if others have tried it. If so, did it cause any problems?
I've not noticed any incompatibilities between the 2.3 and 2.4 versions of
set objects, but my use of them has been pretty straightforward.
