Hence, why the suggestion travels in the direction of "this will
happen on its own maybe in some future perl under maybe some `use

Its just getting the implementation details right enough to be useful
first, and then progressing in that direction carefully before it gets
natively via perl with Perl's own syntax.

Because there are very likely to be many people out there using
indirect code in production, we don't want to globally break this
behaviour on a whim.

So you start with a small known safe test target ( the current
userbase who are already using `no indirect` ), and then work your way
outwards from that.
