in reply to Special literals taken literally

Interestingly, this is fixed two different ways in Perl 6. Instead of special tokens, we have compiler variables like $?PACKAGE and $?FILE. And even if they were still bare identifiers, it would still work, because curlies no longer autoquote. We now use a different notation (angle brackets) for constant string subscripts.

Sorry, I usually try to resist saying "fixed in six", because you'd get tired of it if we said it as often as it's true...
