if you can:

$s ~~ "foo"
$s ~~ /foo/

then wouldn't be good to have also:


IOW, overload .contains() with Str and Regex

Would this be easier to do with $x.contains?  Or would it
be too worky?

.contains only takes a *single string* to look up.  So it is only useful for 
checking whether “foo” exists in “foo bar”:

   say “foo bar”.contains(“foo”)
