Hmm?  No, nothing magical going on here, just MMD, insofar as ^
provides a scalar context, so @foo returns [EMAIL PROTECTED], and we can defined
operators however we like on a particular type according to MMD.

: I think that
:     for @foo.indexes { ... }

:     for [EMAIL PROTECTED] { ... }
: If .indexes turns out to be used a lot, then let's have .i -- "i" for

I think it's just .keys.  And maybe .ix is the top level index.  They'd
be synonymous for a single dimensional array or hash.
