/* SVpav_REAL is set for all AVs whose xav_array contents are refcounted.
* Some things like "@_" and the scratchpad list do not set this, to
* indicate that they are cheating (for efficiency) by not refcounting
* the AV's contents.
* SVpav_REIFY is only meaningful on such "fake" AVs (i.e. where SVpav_REAL
* is not set). It indicates that the fake AV is capable of becoming
* real if the array needs to be modified in some way. Functions that
* modify fake AVs check both flags to call av_reify() as appropriate.
* Note that the Perl stack and @DB::args have neither flag set. (Thus,
* items that go on the stack are never refcounted.)
* These internal details are subject to change any time. AV
* manipulations external to perl should not care about any of this.

=head1 Handy Values
=for apidoc AmU||Nullav
Null AV pointer.
(deprecated - use C<(AV *)NULL> instead)
=head1 Array Manipulation Functions
=for apidoc Am|int|AvFILL|AV* av
Same as C<av_len()>. Deprecated, use C<av_len()> instead.
