but that's no argument against wanting something to be a built-in Perl feature - so it can be conveniently used even in casual self-contained Perl scripts, and so it will be fast.
yes it is because of exactly this
Hap-hazard new features is the reason perl has so many warts, and the p5p are finally catching onto this
This is why your feature-dea will never be a built-in Perl feature like you imagine it will be -- nobody is going to implement it for you and ferret out all the bugs and interactions (and XS and ...) :)
The burden of proof is upon you to prove this feature is worth it, to ferret out all the potential problems and interactions
At least you're not asking to change precedence table :)
