How would you go about copying a coderef? Remember, that routine
makes a copy of dereferenced items, not references.

If you want to look at what Storable, FreezeThaw and some others
have done, you will see they don't copy coderefs either, though I
think some are trying to use B::DeParse to try and get the equivalent.
