I agree, that this should be added. Ideally though, the affected
functions should go into @EXPORT_FAIL it seems. Is it possible to set
@EXPORT_FAIL from within the XS file based on the defines somehow?

Unix::Syslog has been in maintenance mode for over a decade now and I
haven't really spent much time with XS since.


note that "property" can also be used as syntactic sugar to reference
a property, breaking the clean design of verilog; [...]
