Yeah that works. Does universal.c get compiled with PERL_CORE enabled?

Also, I wonder if any important modules define that. I know in Sereal we
copied some code from core to avoid using it[1], and I wonder how many
people have done the opposite. Which then makes me think of the madness of
creating more defines... Imagine PERL_CORE_REALLY and
