No — #93992 is about how Perl should handle subroutine declarations
that bear prototypes and/or attributes, when the subroutine has
already been defined without them. (Plus a few related cases.)

This ticket relates to the fact that the readline() builtin claims to
have the prototype ";*", but doesn't behave like user subroutines with
that prototype. Tickets #130077 and #130078 relate to similar issues
affecting eof() and getc() respectively. Accordingly, I've undone the
links between #93992 and these tickets.

FWIW, my recollection is that mauke was working on #130076 at the hackathon.
