Ticket #1472 (closed cage: invalid)
Namespace.get_pointer_keyed is TOTAL KLUDGE
|Reported by:||whiteknight||Owned by:|
Namespace PMC contains this gem of a comment:
=item C<void *get_pointer_keyed(PMC *key)> Return the given namespace item or PMCNULL. If the named item is either a NameSpace or a var, the var is returned. TOTAL KLUDGE. ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK.
Why is it a kludge, and why is it on the chopping block? If it's really intended to disappear, it should be listed in DEPRECATED.pod. We should also figure where it is used, if anywhere, and evaluate if it's still needed.
