You're right, of course, and I agree that the SCALAR auto-vivification thing is a bug. I remember discussing this with some P5P folks awhile back, and IIRC this auto-creation of the SCALAR slot was fairly well-baked into the core. Still, you think that wandering through the symbol table should be easy -- it's just a hash of GLOBs, right? -- and then you run into all this stuff. *sigh*

[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
[GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
[Corion]: And so far I like signatures and nobody has yet come up to me and screamed at me for implementing a source filter to handle them even on early Perl versions ;)
[Corion]: I should re-prod tsee about the Filter::Simple branches that he might want to merge or that I should merge so he can do a release ;-D
