FWIW, those truly global variables are really all in the main package. The language parser acts as if those global variable names were prefixed with main:: if no package is specified, no matter what package directive is in scope at the time.

    I know that. An amusing side-effect is that if someone mistakenly tries to throw an our on, say, $_ and they are in any package other than main::, it will not work as they expect.

    This might be considered a bug.
