Got it! Using ->can() wrapped in eval{} does the trick nicely:
package Util::Stuff::abc; sub attrib1 { 1 } sub attrib2 { 10 } ... eval { if ($symref->can('attrib1')) { ... $symref->attrib1 is OK ... }};
Thanks to GrandFather and moritz.

[Corion]: * Code not yet written, some restrictions may apply
