: If not a special form, should this work? : : my $pi is constant;
:     $pi = 3;

That could be made to work by defining constant to mean you can assign
to it if it's undefined.  But then it gets a little harder to reason
about it if $pi can later become undefined.  I suppose we could
disallow undefine($pi) though.

Which would basically throw away compile-time optimizations relating to constants wouldn't it?
