This is especially troubling as the code goes to the expense of upgrading
to SVt_PV before. If XS code cannot use SvCUR anymore after upgrading to
SVt_PV then I would consider this a serious regression.

At least the new requirement of having to check a private flag (which
isn't explained anywhere) before calling SVCUR even on pv's should be
clearly documented as a change in behaviour.
