That's not a new break to the symmetry of push and pop:

    @b = (1,2,3);
    push( @a, @b );     # needs 3 pops to get all of 1,2,3 back

and in both the original array form and in the "treat a string
as an array" form, you can retrieve a multi-element thing that
was push'ed in a single operation by using a single invokation
of splice.
