Fixed and applied as e423fa83496ce7d83b137bd7f0852864b6073b36, 01c3fbbc0d1b54bb0dd6fdc0abed7854e62c6717, ee329aefb9c0bfcee0e6cc41dcd6eb8b03206f30 and 0397beb0d12565d70e168bfea7376e2612a6748a.

Is there anything else we should do to avoid mis-use of these functions?

I'm referring to "I/O flow (the actual 5 minute tutorial)", should this be expanded elsewhere?

I don't think it should be expanded in perlunitut.
