Sigils can't conflict with unary operators (like, say, the
stringification and flattening operators, ~ and *) and ideally
shouldn't conflict with binary ops either (although % breaks this

This has been done before several times on p6l, but I'll do it again:

There are very few unary operators available, and none (besides the
user-defined backticks operator) unused in both term and operator
