When has this change happened?  I see no discussion on p5p,
and only these changes this year to lib/

Change 6971 on 2000/09/01 by jhi@alpha 'Add the overload warnings to pe'
Change 6970 on 2000/09/01 by jhi@alpha 'Subject: RE: [PATCH lib/overloa'
Change 6969 on 2000/09/01 by jhi@alpha 'Subject: [PATCH lib/'
Change 6860 on 2000/08/28 by jhi@alpha 'Subject: [PATCH@6855] _Minor_ c'
Change 5527 on 2000/03/04 by gsar@auger 'make hints available via global'
Change 5507 on 2000/03/04 by gsar@auger 'more whitespace removal (from M'

The first three are argument checking of overload::constant, the
fourth one is a doc patch, the fifth and sixth are code beautification.
The gv.c which handles the guts implementation hasn't been changed
around nomethod for a long time, either...
