A number of things broken by the new COW work were answered with, "By the way,
you need to use THINKFIRST there."  This, in turn, was followed by, "What?
That's undocumented and how was I supposed to know that?"  The third line in
this exchange, if any, was "Welcome to the perl guts!"

It's true enough, but if it's going to be needed, let's get this documented so
we can point people at the documentation when the code breaks.
