One could go the other way and allow user-defined code to act as push etc. do now.

Prototypes can do exactly that.
From perlsub:
sub mypush (\@@)

[ shh]$ su real

    True enough, and I should know that, however I eschew prototypes. That however, does not allow push itself to take a reference. Which was my point, as I gave reasons why I believe such a route would be superior to this method (of allowing subs the same abailities as CORE).

    perl -wpe "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"
