The point is that the acceptability of controlling @_ suppression
based on signatures is being founded on the warning that is based on
automatic detection of references to @_.  The automatic detection being
too incomplete means that that warning can't be relied upon to catch @_
references, which means we have the problem of signature introduction
being liable to leave undetected uses of @_ in place.
