Is the pandas .eval() method allowed in algorithms?

I am trying to use the pandas/dataframe method .eval() add get the error "Cannot import attribute within module eval.".

Is this error being generated by Quantopian and, if so, why? Is it possible to use this method? See documentation here http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/generated/pandas.DataFrame.eval.html

Hey Dan I think certain attributes are blacklisted and thats why you can't use them
