timo i guess Array is already `a list` so it just returns self, but array[int] isn't? 00:21
and slices should give you the same type if possible i guess

raydiak for the first, I can only imagine that the thinking was that Array literally isa List, so why should .list do anything? and since array (not Array) isn't a List, it instead makes a List when you call .list. for the second, I can see a slice being looked at either way: a "slice" of something shouldn't change what it is, just like a slice of blueberry pie shouldn't become strawberry when you cut it. but otoh, 01:35
someone might think of a slice more like indexing multiple values at once, and expect to get back a structure which is abstracted from the container type that they are pulling the values "out of"...either way this one is a definite inconsistency. wrt the third pair, I guess .values gives a Seq when it comes from an Array because it can be lazy, while an array cannot

Add Uni.ACCEPTS(Uni) candidate

so that Uni(97) ~~ Uni(97) returns True.
Did not add additional candidates for non-Uni, as I'm not 100% about the semantics, *and* it's going to be tricky to implement in the setting due to the late definition of the Uni class, and the fact that the Uni class has a "is repr" trait.

Geth roast: 6b7c4f20d1 | (Stefan Seifert)++ | S01-perl-5-integration/roundtrip.t
Fix a GLR straggler in S01-perl-5-integration/roundtrip.t

Inline::Perl5 has only recently gotten adapted to the flattening behaviour expected after the GLR. That's why this test's wrong expectations went by undiscovered for just as long. The test was written years before the GLR in a time where we flattened arguments as agressively as Perl does. Nowadays one often needs to be more explicit when expecting that like in this case a list should be flattened out into a function call's arguments.

rakudo/Cool.Order: 410b03d8ce | (Elizabeth Mattijsen)++ | src/core.c/Cool.pm6
Add Cool.Order "coercer"

Convert a Cool value to the associated Order enum:
  - < 0 -> Less
  - 0 -> Same
  - > 0 -> More
The only other way to currently do this, is by basically writing the ORDER (implementation-detail) subroutine again, or just do a call to ORDER. This allows syntactic sugar to not have to do it like that.

lizmat given class A { my class B { } }, do we have some introspection to get at class B even though it is hidden inside A's lexical scope? 20:06
vrurg lizmat: no 20:08
B exists only in A's body block lexpad which is only available to A's lexicals. 20:09
lizmat so I guess class A { class B is implementation-detail { } } would be the only solution 20:10
