Except that it has to be a reference to a reference, because (1,2)
(in scalar context) already evaluates to a reference, because it can't
be a pure array.
A list isn't a thing like an array. It's always the result of something:
Could you think of a formal specification of \ the way you want it, that
doesn't exist of only examples? What context does it give its RHS? What
do you want , in that comma to do? Are parens in any way special when
used with \? What is the precedence of \?
