As an off-the-wall suggestion that might let you have your cake and eat
it to: Contextual::Return

It allows you to specify what gets returned by context. I'm not saying
it will work, but it came to mind when I read the last couple posts.

Don't forget that RT::Ticket::Create gets called by third party code,
lots and lots of third party code. Generally changing RT's API in a
backwards-incompatible way is something that I'm not willing to do
during a stable series.  (I also tend to be a fan of Postel's Law, when
it comes to APIs: Be liberal in what you accept.)
