Does anyone know the circumstances under which the 'FAKE' flag (SVf_FAKE)
will get set ?

The question was asked on the XS list a while back, but I didn't see any
response - though I'm sure there are people there who know the answer.

The comment in sv.h says it means that "glob or lexical is just a copy". 

I've not yet managed to set that flag from perl ... and I'm curious.
