in thread AUTOLOAD for variables?

I like the trick but, unfortunately, the evil of my users far surpasses it. Its not uncommon to see code such as:
my $value= ${ uc join "_", @$reg_spec{ qw( device reg field ) } };
You really don't want to see some of the more nasty code. Honest. Especially not the 70000 line regex (its one saving grace is the /x modifier). And perhaps not the script that parses another script's --verbose output. Or perhaps ...

Opinions my own; statements of fact may be in error.
