I agree with removing indirect object notation examples given in core
documentation. If anyone strongly objects to removing examples from the
perspective Abigail originally provided ("Seeing it is knowing it
exists"), we can keep it in some cases with a comment saying direct
methods should be used instead.

Regarding the "indirect" pragma (vpit++), I believe last time I saw a
significant reduction in speed, which I think should at least be
revisited in any future suggestion of implementing it in core. Off-hand,
I don't see a particular problem with providing it with a "use 5.x"
pragma statement. I would be happy to see a discussion around the topic
before any decisions are reached.
