in reply to On Scalar Context

Wow. Most of these sound like defects even if usage in scalar index seems of dubious value and bad style. I don't see how defense of these modes can be rationalized (except not to break old stuff). Meanwhile, never make any assumptions about a list function in scalar context -- it's all random :)

How do we move to get this standardized and rational? Any hope for Perl6 ( aka 2010? :) )
