new database or use current for retrofit of perch

I am looking at retro-fitting perch to an existing site which already runs on php with an existing MySQL database. Are there any problems with pointing perch at the current MySQL db or would it be 'better' to have an additional MySQL db just for perch? Dumb question I know but client wants to be sure (as do I!)

That's fine - Perch names all its tables with a prefix (perch2_ currently, perch3_ soon) so there shouldn't be any clash with existing table names.
