in thread scoping problems

The logic of this, determined by Larry at the Dawn of Time (Perl version 1.0), is that the elements of arrays (and also of hashes associative arrays) are always and only scalars.

Interestingly, this logic (which sounds perfectly sane to me) has been abandoned in Perl 6. I don't understand why.
