True, but I still consider it a win in terms of reduced complexity.
Before, we have two function calls with two variable assignments from
their return values (@blk and @ret).  Afterwards, we’ll have a single
function all with one variable assignment from its return value (@blk),
and one stand-alone variable assignment with a constant value (“ret =
-EPERM” or similar). :)
