    Are there any performance gains/hits when using variable types?

    We actually have safecall operator (.?) in Perl 6. It looks if an object .^can() call the provided method and returns Nil if it can't.

    It's not very versatile, because of the stuff a Nil type inherits, some of the methods you CAN call on it, but the call still fails because of type restrictions on those methods, so the whole thing goes crashing anyway.

    I guess Perl 5 isn't affected as much, since `undef` isn't an object, but I encourage you to think up of cases where it might end up being one...
