Sigh... well, now I know what Ctrl-Return does in Evolution :-/

Ok, so what I was getting at was that the above three are methods on

You might also provide a procedural alias, but:

        multi sub lenth(: Str ?$string = $CALLER::_) returns Int {
                $string.size; # I think it was called that

These are real procedurals:

Grrr.. I can't recall what Larry had said about this... I know he
mentioned it once on this list. Maybe that was the ruleish "pos"?

Ah blessed sprintf. Were we adopting a Pythonish implicit sprintf? I
forget. Would that impact the existence of explicit sprintf? Probably

Larry has said this is a rather hairy TBD in the past, though it might
have been discussed since.

How will undef($x) and $x=undef compare in p6? Has that been covered? I
have a vague memory, but nothing swimming to the surface.

This is pack with issues :)
