As you say, your first example is a typo. As for the second example, it's a very uncommon pattern, and if such variable names occur in a document, they should either be inside src blocks, or inside verbatim or code markers. In both case, there's no breakage with respect to parsing, export and tangling. The fontification may fail though. It wont fail if your src blocks are fontified natively, and the fontification of $…$ can be globally disabled. > We have no way of seeing every org file that users have > written so we don't know the extent of the impact, and thus > have to assume that there would be some impact.

It is quite likely that this change will fix more documents than it breaks. Hardly a disaster. Regards, -- Sébastien Miquel
