in thread Why doesn't Perl provide %_ as the hash equivalent of @_ in subs?
Or if you modify @_, for that matter. Will we now have 2 copies of all the arguments with all the memory headaches that brings or will it be a reference (and how would that work)?
For all the nice-to-haves such a feature might provide I think there are too many drawbacks and quite frankly the single-line "boilerplate" to achieve the same is no great hardship.
