Yes, that would work. However, the drawbacks of this to me are:

  1. the check happens at runtime, not compiletime
  2. it requires each method taking a callback to implement the cycle check. that might be in 3rd party code and so require additional wrapping etc.

    otoh, its cheap check (cheaper than universal competence )

    and simpler to write than a pragma like autovivification -- have you looked at that thing? it walks the perl op-tree using c --- scary :)
