We do the latter, to some extent.  The SvREFCNT_inc() macros with
"_simple" in their name are permitted to double evaluate: the "_simple"
indicates that the caller guarantees that the argument is simple enough.
So another way to fix this particular bug would have been to drop the
"_simple".  With some other macros we have the convention of an "x"
suffix to indicate that the macro will not double evaluate: for example,
SvIVx() as the single-evaluation version of SvIV().

They can all handle static functions, which is close enough.
