reset will be demoted to a method on a package or hash object. It will no longer be a keyword. We can't get rid of the functionality entirely if we want to be able to translate Perl 5 to Perl 6 though. But it can definitely stand to be de-Huffmanized, or more accurately, Huffmanized to be longer. Funny how we associate Huffman with making easy things easier but not harder things harder...
