     What is the purpose of having $! in Perl 6?

     The global variables in Perl 5 are a constant headache, prompting
us to need to local()ize variables like $@, $!, and $? to avoid
unforeseen consequences like RT #127386 and those documented in
Try::Tiny’s POD.

     Perl 6 seems to give us both the “right” and the “wrong” solution
to accessing exception variables: we get $_ within a CATCH block
(right), but we also get that global $!--which, to me, seems
pathologically wrong.

But it's not global! None of $_, $/, $! are global.
