Discussion

   Vickenty Fesunov [24]asked (Try::Tiny::XS) for a review of his
   implementation of [25]Try::Tiny in XS.

   David Mertens [26]mentioned eval_pv would be useful if it evaluated code
   under the package in which the keyword is actively parsing. [27]Response
   from Father Chrysostomos how it works during compile-time and how to
   control the package under which the code is evaluated.
