it would return true.

Eliminate PL_* accessor functions under ithreads.

When MULTIPLICITY was first developed, and interpreter state moved into an
interpreter struct, thread and interpreter local PL_* variables were defined
as macros that called accessor functions, returning the address of the value,

interpreter struct to change size without breaking binary compatibility, so
that bug fixes could be merged to a maintenance branch that necessitated such
a size change.

However, some non-core code defines PERL_CORE, sometimes intentionally to
bypass this mechanism for speed reasons, sometimes for other reasons but with
the inadvertent side effect of bypassing this mechanism. As some of this code

it. Hence it can and should be removed.
