This is actually what I've been thinking during this discussion. I'm not
really seeing a pressing need for strict in one-liners, but
phiosophically, I can understand why one might want to have strict on in
all cases. So, if we think this is something that actually needs
solving, this mechanism seems reasonable to me.

The 5to6.pod document in the doc directory says it does exist. I lean
towards feeling the docs should be more correct/reliable than the design
documents, as that's where people outside the p6 creation bubble will be
looking for info (not that, at the moment, they necessarily *are* more
correct/reliable - work in progress and all...).

All that said, there doesn't, at a quck glance, seem to be any
equivalent to Perl 5's perlrun document, which would detail the
command line flags. Maybe I'll take a shot at something like that in
the coming days.
