Using strict *STILL* is not enabled by default for perl6
one-liners either:

$ perl6 -e'my Int $this = 1; $thıs++; say $this;'
$ perl6 -Mstrict -e'my Int $this = 1; $thıs++; say $this;'
===SORRY!=== Error while compiling -e
Variable '$thıs' is not declared. Did you mean '$this'?
at -e:1
------> my Int $this = 1; ⏏$thıs++; say $this;

That, IMHO, is a huge deficiency!
