Well, err, yeah. Shouldn't this have been obvious to you? Fat comma has the same effect. That hash subscripts are treated as strings is nothing new. You've known you can type $foo{BAR} without having to quote "BAR". This is just the same rule. No special magic at all. In fact, that's thing. There's less magic here.

    Yes, it should have. I kicked myself when I realized what I did. This meditation is a reminder, not a discovery.
