I started using all my fingers about ten years ago when I got a book that included classical exercises using them. It took awhile to get even tone with the pinky, but it can be done.

When I started learning lefty a couple of years ago, I started by using all my fingers ... and it's not my pinky that's giving me the most trouble with even tone ... it's my thumb!

I think the reason people might not recommend it is because it does take more practice to get the pinky to play independently from the other fingers, but if you work at it, it can be done.
