Extra Scalar member of GVs for methods
Message ID:

While debugging SV leakage in Tk I noticed that when GVs are dropped
into derived class package to represent the "inherited" methods
the GVs have their SV slot filled in with a NULL SV.

Is this either necessary or useful? 
When you have a system like Tk with lots of inherited methods
having $Tk::Text::destroy created when you call $text->destroy
means quite a few SVs get called into being never to be used.
