Well, if Damian can point out specific behavioural deficiencies in
code blocks and qr constant overloading, I'm happy to attempt to address

Note however that R::G, as was implemented, specifically relied on a bug in
the old perl implementation that allowed code blocks contained in strings
(rather than in regexes) to be interpolated into regexes and be executed,
without requiring a 'use re eval' in scope.
