I understand the objections for the overall concept (both 117 and 214).
What I don't understand though, is why it is clearly NO for 117 but
leaves room for hesitation for 214, while to me 214 is just 117 plus an
extra level of indirection...

What is your usecase for such functionality? Debugging? Runtime checks

There is "pincer" from <somebody>? tcl type introspection.
I had seen it on the web but can't remember where.
