This became a formal proposal <>, which I think is more or less ready to implement.  *Who would like to implement it?*  Many people who write in Perl 5 would benefit from such a builtin, and I believe it should be relatively straightforward.

If we don't have any implementation in progress in the next couple months, this proposal will be dumped into Expired. status.
