Hm, good point.
I guess it could be made so that in case of an uneven sized list, it excludes the first item.

But that would break consistency with regard how uneven lists are usually interpreted as hashes, which I think is to exclude the last item and printing a warning.

    Or, maybe, the hash is created once you use the variable for the first time, so you can safely shift the $self or $class.
