And here I do not mean I do not want to have such a heuristic or the like,
but I'd like it a bit more explicit, as having defined but false and undefined
differ is always a bit a recipe for misuse (yeah it's a local closure so it
doesn't need to be held against the standards of a "public" method but still,
not ideal.

Maybe avoid the eval in the closure and handle the error explicit?
