Maybe I can throw some questions out from this issue.

"Do they deparse?" is the main question I'm seeing.

Others questions I see are that there are problems with the callchecker
related to these subs (which may already be solved), and setting a
prototype at runtime.

Which, if any, of these do we want to make official requirements to make
this unexperimental? Or do we just say 'We've had enough time, Mikey
likes it, so it's unexperimental now."
