in thread Assignment and use statement in the same BEGIN block

Thanks choroba, my friend Discipulus, and tobyink for all the useful explanation.

Toby's clicks the most to me. And this snippet makes things very clear to me: BEGIN { say 1; BEGIN { say 2 } } printing 2 before 1. In other words, you ain't finish BEGIN'ing until you end (close) it. Sigh. And the specialness of the use statement again standing in my way.
