in thread OO-call bug uncovered & autovivified functions: defined? exists?

Of course. I'm not arguing for such a change. There already exists sufficient tools (defined) to check if a function exists. I'm just challenging the claim that autovivification through \& is necessary to call functions loaded dynamically.
