: And this is also nice:

: sub foo :(Str,Int) of :(Any) {...}

You would need :() only to group multiple siglets into a single type.
So an Any can stand on its own.

: Will there be an announcement if this syntax becomes official?

Paint it official unless someone can come up with a good counterargument.

: BTW, would it be a good idea that you make such decisions known on p6a?

p6a is for political announcements, not technical.  :-)

Things actually become "official" when they get put into synopses.

Unfortunately, I don't have much time to edit synopses much these days.
No billionaires have written me into their will lately (or if they
have, they haven't pegged out yet), so for now I have to earn my
own way out of the financial hole I'm in, and that takes a lot of
time away from Perl.  I'm just barely keeping up with the email,
and I'm not getting anything done on the translator.  Sorry.

If you want to help, earn a billion dollars and write me into your
will.  And then peg out.  Nothing personal.  :-)
