Localizing a typeglob to get a scope-bound filehandle is not necessarily a good idea for various other reasons as well.

Oh. Didn't know there were other possible problems. What are they?

I know of the gensym solution for early perls - but since 99% of the time overriding the non-IO bits of the glob hasn't been an issue for me I stuck with the local method when I couldn't autovivify the filehandle.

Curious to know what the other possible pitfalls are.
