That's old Perl5-ese. There was a big jargon change when people started
to realise and agree that having two things both called arrays or lists
was confusing. There are still some occurrences of "array context" left,
but in reality, even in Perl 5, that should only refer to the context in
which an array is expected, as provided by a \@ prototype.
