in reply to Named array indices

IIRC there is a deprecated approach to define hash-like arrays for this reason (actually I can't find it in the 5.10 docs anymore)

They were called pseudo hashes, but that functionality has been removed in 5.9 without any real replacement (unfortunately, IMHO).  (Yes, there's use fields which now uses restricted hashes internally, but I don't think that'll help with your requirement...)

    They were called pseudo hashes,

    Ahhh ... excactly!

    I was googling with combinations with "Array" not "Hashes"! :)
