This is a bug report for perl from alankila@elma.net,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.33 running under perl v5.6.1.

I don't really care if this ever gets fixed or not, as I suspect people who
make use of typeglob aliases deserve what they get. But nevertheless, I would
like to have a clean way to alias functions to different names, as I sometimes
need this feature. The less typing and runtime overhead to it, the better.

% perl -wle 'use Carp; *foo = \&bar; sub bar { confess("Should be foo") } foo()'
Should be foo at -e line 1
         main::bar() called at -e line 1
