Having a limper (no matter how loose he is) only ensures 3+ way action, which is suicide for low pairs.

Huh? Isn't 3+ way action awesome for low pocket pairs? The only thing to consider here is how often it gets raised behind you.

I raise about 25% of the time, fold the rest, never limp SH in this situation.

This is probably retarded, and I'll be derided for saying it, but... I'm kind of hoping it gets raised. It's just irritating when I flop a set and everyone folds to my flop bet, winning a 3SB pot. If some more people get in the pot and it gets bloated by button's or BB's raise, I know I'm going to have tons of customers chasing their overcards/gutshots in a juicy, ever-growing 8SB+ pot. I also like knowing where the action will be coming from and having more information about opponents' hands. I don't have any math to back up what is nothing more than a gut feeling, but it seems like the more profitable scenario.

okok I raise sometimes.

but I usually have an image that would prefer a limp. maybe I raise when I've been card dead or otherwise getting lots of respect though, we'll say 85% or so limp though. I don't ofld much.
