I've had in mind adding an optional $ prefix to identifiers so they
don't clash with reserved keywords. This would have to go into a
CTF 1.9 though.

Meanwhile, validating that there are no identifier clash in babeltrace
seems like a good idea. Alternatively, prefixing all identifiers with
an underscore eliminates those clashes, and Babeltrace even strip those
underscore before printing, but since underscore is a character that
is allowed within keywords, this can bring interesting clash when
a keyword actually begins with an underscore, so I would like to
replace those by $.

Thoughts ?

Thanks,

Mathieu
