in reply to Array interpolation in Rakudo

At the moment Using Perl 6 in the section on interpolation has this to say
TODO: explain (non-)interpolation of arrays and hashes once Rakudo gets that right
You are seeing the expected behaviour rather than a bug:
You may see a bug if you attempt, (haven't got access to Rakudo @ work)
my @array = ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ); say "The array is {@array}";
The {} curly braces within double quotes should allow any expression to be interpolated into the string.

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
