in thread ref to read-only alias ... why?
Could you please clarify which the "working case" is in your opinion?
It shouldn't matter whether your scalar was created by «my $x» or by «123». The literal «123» should return a modifiable value. The code in \ is specifically there to emulate that without the cost of creating a new scalar every time «123» is evaluated.
I agree with tye that there are good arguments for both perspectives.
I can't find these arguments. Could you give me a link?
