And I did so promptly and put Devel::Hints 0.02 on CPAN, because this
 is needed in production today:

        use Devel::Hints ':all';

        print cop_label();      # 'LABEL'

        print cop_seq();        # some integer

        $[ = 10;
        print cop_arybase();    # 10

        use open IO => ':utf8';
        print cop_io();         # same as compile-time ${^OPEN}

            use IO => ':raw';
            print cop_io(1);    # access one uplevel; still ":utf8\0:utf8"

This, combined with a padwalker-inspired trick:

    #define MYCOP ((count <= 0) ? PL_curcop \
				: cxstack[cxstack_ix - count + 1 ].blk_oldcop)

has enabled me to override CORE::GLOBAL::open() while respecting the caller's
${^OPEN} bits, and add it back with binmode().

A new version of PerlIO::via::trap should be released soon with this
