Read Arrays are not lists and Scalars, Lists, and Arrays and repeat to yourself three times - "('foo', 'bar', 'baz') is not an array" ;-)

I can't be blamed if you don't read my post. ;-) I didn't say ('foo', 'bar', 'baz') was an array, I said If I ask for a reference to an array that contains ('foo', 'bar', 'baz').
