in thread Help! My variables are jumping off a cliff!

The field of problems that are a) always errors, b) detectable, and c) easily made unintentionally is not very large. Also, the docs for 'strict' specifically mention 'vars' as being intended to prevent variable suicide - which it fails to do in this case. Currently, the only thing that we've got is a mildly-phrased warning; in fact, it's classified as 'misc' in the warnings hierarchy.

That just seems totally inappropriate to me - particularly when compared to the way this kind of error is treated in other languages.

[Corion]: So after talking it through with you even while I'm still not entirely clear on where AE ends and my implementation begins, I think I understand that I only need to implement some smaller parts for each functionality I want to support.
[Corion]: Yeah... and you might even be able to mix and match additional functionality if you have additional async suppliers, like from a separate thread
[ambrus]: You hvae to be careful with the timer, because apparently Prima::Timer insists on being periodic, wheras AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::timer should give a one-shot timer watcher
[ambrus]: I think the minimal implementation here is just a timer and io function, plus pushing to the @REGISTRY.
