There has to, but whatever it is, it's not documented.  I tried to  
google up some clarity on this issue, but all I came up with was one  
offhand reference to "faking an op" in a September 2004 Nick Ing- 
Simmons post to p5p. <http://www.mail-archive.com/perl5- 
porters at perl.org/msg81358.html>

I figure it's not documented because the API's unstable, unwieldy,  
ugly, or whatever, and therefore shouldn't be made public.   
Spelunking the perl source might tell me why, but I'm not sure where  
to start.
