Re the last one, it should simply be gotten rid of. The reason it's there is to keep you from accidentally saying print (1+2)/3;. That now gives /both/ a useless use of division in void context and a print interpreted as function. The "print interpreted as function" was there long before the "... in void context"; the later is more useful, but was harder for perl to notice.
