Err, no. That was just a comment on what I'll be expecting when perl6
hits the streets.
More than once, I've started using vi commands in emacs and emacs commands
in vi. I've started typing perl code into a C program, and C code into
a perl program.
That hard fundemental lesson learnt, that @foo doesn't mean what you thought,
will be hard to fight.
