in thread When do you function?

Well, since it'd probably be just an attribute on a subroutine, and we already have those, there's nothing really to RFC. {grin}

Ideally, the Perl compiler would just recognize when a subroutine qualifies as an open-coded version, and "do the right thing". I'd prefer that. Just like how certain subroutines are recognized as "constant" now, and pre-evaluated.
