perlintern’s Undocumented functions section begins like this:

       The following functions have been flagged as part of the public API,
       but are currently undocumented. Use them at your own risk, as the
       interfaces are subject to change.

But this is perlintern, so they have not been flagged as part of the public API.

Some of these functions I don’t think should be listed at all. glob_assign_glob, for instance, is a static function used only by set_setsv_flags. curse is also a static function, used only by two other functions in sv.c, where the way the function is called makes the purpose obvious. Other functions that are not static are so closely tied to their callers that it seems pointless to list them here.

So I propose simply removing this list from perlintern.
