> BTW, I still think it is STUPID that Perl hides all the %'s and @'s in
almost every practical use of a hash and array.  I understand why it's
$array[0], but I DON'T like it!  If it's an array, it should use the
array symbol!

You're thoughts must have got through to LW anyway - Perl 6 maintains 
sigils regardless of reference.

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable
