(progn (setq xxx 1)
       (setq o (make-overlay 0 0))
       (overlay-put o 'modification-hooks (lambda (ov dummy b e l)
                                            (setq xxx 0)))
       (overlay-put o 'evaporate t)
=> 1

Result I expected is 0.
So I can know an overlay is dead.
Do I misunderstand?
