As an idea for a feature, ProhibitIndirectSyntax could report on the common DynaLoader form bootstrap Foo; or bootstrap Foo $VERSION; I'd used it several times over the years by cut and paste before realizing it was a method call instead of some magical function :-). Anything where "bootstrap" is followed by the current package name would be pretty unambiguous and could be a builtin. I don't think bootstrap normally appears with anything except the current package name either. I suppose it would work to make the call from somewhere else, but that'd have to be rare.
