It’s only arguable in practice, because the available solutions
all suck in different ways. There is however no inherent reason
for solutions to suck. Scalar::Util could contain a routine that
does the desired check correctly, making it shorter to write than
any of the alternatives. And if the core provided a way to install
XSUBs as ops, then the right way could even be faster than the
broken way.
