No, and there would be no intrinsic gain in doing so.  The implementation
is perfectly clean as it is, as an independent XS module.  The only
potential benefit would be the possibility of including it in a future
"use 5.030" feature bundle.  As it imposes a somewhat unPerlish discipline
(analogous to strict "vars"), it would be quite contentious to get it
added to such a bundle.

(It certainly is handy.  When I first wrote it, applying it across the
entire $ork codebase instantly uncovered about twenty missing imports.)
