That's the key question, isn't it? I hardly think tying variables to
which references already exist is a common practice.
Then, unless it has changed, I guess you have not used Tk recently
as IIRC there are some modules there which call tie via a reference
that was passed to the sub, so it is quite possible that other
references exist.

I think your assumption that this is not practice is not used a lot
is a badly informed one.

But then Tk will need a lot of work if XS is not going to be compatible
as it stresses XS now :-)
And we already
have disavowed any claims of 100% Perl 5 compatibility.
Maybe, but the number is getting smaller all the time.

anything else. -- Winston Churchill
