    An entire category of entities just for three pseudo-constants, for hysterical purposes thanks to C legacy. Yeah. I think that qualifies as a wart on the language.

    . . . but I still do love my Perl so. Thanks again.

      I personally believe you may be glad to know -just for the record- that in full respect to the principle of least surprise, in Perl 6 "this kinda things" will actually be made regular variables of an appropriate namespace, with an appropriate sigil, and an appropriate twigil.
