In Perl docs (such as perlmod manpage) there are missing
an explanation (or at least is too hard to find) how to
do the following think:

Having two strings, check whether in the package with
given name (first string) there are a subroutine with
given name (second string).

I've already tried about ten variants neither works.
Even if one could work, I'm not sure that it will be
compatible with future versions of Perl 5.

So, we need docs clearly explain how to check for
existence of a subroutine in a package having package
name and subroutine name as strings.
