Heh - I must've looked at the C code a hundred times over the years, and never noticed the unreached
PUTBACK; return;
... though, as I write this, I'm suddenly struck with a contradictory sense of "deja vu".

That unreached code *is* confusing and/or annoying, and it would be nice to make that piece of xsubbp-generated code reachable (as you suggest) - which means amending in a way that makes me feel a bit uneasy.

Your 'do nothing' was probably the right call

Maybe ... I *have* been right before, y'know !! ... by accident, of course ( ... which would also be the case in this instance :-)

I'll chew this over for a while, as time permits. I've already checked that ikegami's suggested changes re the "no-op" and the "PUTBACK" insertions don't break the test suite. (However, they still leave us with that unreached "return" ... not that he suggested they would do otherwise.)

Thanks BrowserUk, ikegami.

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
