Some people on IRC have noted that Devel-NYTProf fails its tests on blead,
and have identified 0740a29d60ebd4ff72090340b0140ec2210e90c7 "stop using
&PL_sv_yes as no-op method" as the offending commit.  Devel-NYTProf has
at least some explicit knowledge of the behaviour of &PL_sv_yes as a
callable, so this looks like an internals-heavy module being broken by
the intentional change in undocumented behaviour.  It's not a reason to
revert the core change; I've opened [rt.cpan.org #123846] regarding the
need for Devel-NYTProf to update.
