"I'm using it in production scripts now ..."
Well. That's a hack and a bad idea to use in some *real* code. I suggest adding a long comment before it to explain what the heck it does. But anyway I still think that this code is nasty

And here is another nasty one (multi dimensional hash emulation):

C:\>perl -wle "use strict; my %h; $h{'foo','bar', 'baz'} = 'dumb'; pri +nt $h{qw/foo bar baz/}" dumb C:\>perl -V:version version='5.10.0'; C:\>
achaic but works and hey, who needs references :p
