Meanwhile, if we want to introduce functions with changed semantics,
could we finally have a reftype that does away with the
REF/GLOB/LVALUE/whatever madness and just returns SCALAR for any
scalar, independent of what value it has? The precise invariant I'd
like is that refaddr($x) remains constant when you assign to $$x but
not to $x.
