I didn't look at the rest, but this last line is illegal syntax.
It "accidentally" works, but what you're really saying there
is the same as:

        $testdigest = $untaken[rand @untaken];

And you might as well say what you mean. :)

It will definitely stop working in the future, and is already a
"warnable" offense, that you would have caught with -w turned on.
