As far as I can tell, Scalar::Util and List::Util have become the dumping 
ground for things which probably should have been core language features but 

F'r example, the ref operator almost never does the right thing.  
Scalar::Util::reftype() almost always does (except for that pesky 
undef-returning bit).
