Mistyping hash keys is something that happens when you use hashes. It's not something that only happens when you use hashes of hashes, nor do hashes of hashes make it worse.

And you can prevent this from happening by making all your keys constants, and prepending a + in front of each key that otherwise might be autoquoted.

Disallowing hashes of hashes sounds as useful to me as disallowing arithmetic which involves divisions, as some people don't master division.

[Corion]: Ouch. I just learned something about Chrome - the "version numbers" are not really feature numbers... Chrome 62 still gets new features even though Chrome 64 is out and Chrome 65 is the dev version
[erix]: why ouch? Something to be said for that ,surely?
LanX is a dev version
[marto]: That reminds me, I made some notes somewhere with regard W::M::C, I'll get round to a PR when I've time to flesh it out
[Corion]: erix: But that makes for fun bug hunting. "What version of Chrome are you running?" "v62". "I also run v62 and it works on my machine". :-(
[Corion]: marto: Great, looking forward to the PR!
