Hmm, actually it does not let me put the parens there:
$ perl6 -e 'say now() - BEGIN now;'

===SORRY!=== Error while compiling -e
Undeclared routine:
    now used at line 1

This works:

$ perl6 -e 'say now - BEGIN now;'

but I am not sure why is that interesting. Could you elaborate please?

Oh and Timo,  I think, if I understand this correctly, they are both
monotonic in the mathematical sense.
Neither can decreases, can day?
The difference is that 'time' stops here-and-there and waits for a leap
second to pass before it resumes increasing.
