    [Eily]: the overload version wouldn't return true with "$x" && !length $x though, I guess
    [hippo]: The more I look at this code, the more $x is a plain old scalar and the more this condition will never be true. I'm calling it a bug at this point.
    [hippo]: Thanks for your input which has soothed my sanity (a little)
    [Corion]: Eily: Sure - if you force both things into stringy things, then you break that magic. But that would also mean that you changed the expression, as now $x = 0.00 will be true instead of false as it were before
    [Corion]: Ah no, at least in my feeble experiments that doesn't change the meaning
    [Corion]: We sell sanity in small packages ;)
    [Eily]: oh, boolean context uses the "" overload if no bool overload has been defined
    [Eily]: (I wondered if overloading bool was actually necessary)
