Actually, the object() function allows you to test is a variable is unset...

I cannot imagine a case where this would be necessary. Are there examples of the utility of this functionality?

I can't think of any.

One comes to mind. In EuGTK, I can load a single library (for Linux) as an atom or a whole slew of libraries (Windows) as a sequence of atoms, so I declare LIBS as an object, then test:

  if not object(LIBS) then libraries found.
