Thank you anyway.  Or, rather, thank you for not restoring it till now, because I might not have been prompted by laziness to come up with a simpler solution otherwise. :-)

I do think it is over-engineered and that cv_set_call_checker_flags is a better solution.

BTW, have you seen what I am doing on the sprout/cvgv branch?  It is almost ready for merging, but not quite.  Maybe a few more days.  In any case, ‘sub foo{} foo() \&foo’ no longer has to create a *foo glob, saving memory.
