    I am amazed that
    works without warning, on 5.6.1 and on 5.8.4, as does
    my $x = ();

    Can anybody explain, are my expectations so off?

      From perldata:

      If you evaluate an array in scalar context, it returns the length
      of the array. (Note that this is not true of lists, which return the last
      value, like the C comma operator, nor of built-in functions, which
      return whatever they feel like returning.)

      An empty list doesn't have any values, so trying to get the last value gives you undef.

      We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!
