Absolutely; I often topicalize with for. But I'd also write "ref $_" as "ref" or "ref()" -- concision!

    I don't generally like foo() much for routines that operate on $_. In this case I added it because I'd've had to if I'd written
    'HASH' eq ref ? $_ : {}
    as the question mark is then parsed as a pattern delimiter instead of as part of a ternary. I usually write my comparisons that way around. But here neither the parens nor the variable is necessary as the following eq is unambiguous as to its meaning.
