glass hole drilling

I am building an diy aquarium i have ordered glass. i had a hole drilled on the glass for overflow (on side glass of aquarium). the glass is 10 mm thick and the drilled hole is 10 mm in diameter. but since the glass is tempered the glass workers have have made a linear cut to the hole. this straight cut as they have said is to relieve the stress of tempering. Is this straight cut acceptable for my fish tank. the photo shows the glass with the hole.
