I will be grieving the loss of contextual sigils a long time, too. It's the one thing I'll dearly miss about Perl 5. However, even in Perl 5, they are not as useful as you might think - they work for all the simple cases, but unfortunately break down once you start working with references and especially with references to functions.

Makeshifts last the longest.
