Better errors for common array parameter mistakes

These are mistakes that beginners make a lot, so try to help them out. The two particular cases I'm thinking of are something like:
  `sub a(Array @b) { dd @b }; my @c = 1, 3; a(@c)`
where they forgot or didn't realize that the `@` sigil on the parameter already implied an array. and
  `sub a(Int @b) { dd @b }; my @c = 1, 3; a(@c)`
where they forgot or didn't realize that Raku's types are nominal, i.e., they need to be be explicitly declared, they aren't just inferred.

ISON @lizmat 15:58
jdv finanalyst: you ok?;) 16:01
finanalyst @jdv: I'm fine. But I really do not know IRC. I feel like a dynasaur
jdv wut is ison? 16:03
finanalyst I looked up IRC commands to find how to see if someone was on line. ISON is given in Wikipedia 16:08
Eventually found `/msg` 16:09
lizmat a good IRC client will help you with a lot of that :-) 16:10
finanalyst @lizmat: hi. Sorry for the noise 16:12
jdv @ is for twitter
finanalyst jdv: thank you. I'm still an email person. 16:13
[Coke] You get used to it. :)
lizmat jdv's reply reminded me of www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoPXQ9fotZM
jdv finanalyst: cool:)
[Coke] My biggest IRC problem was trying to run it from my laptop - ended up running a tmux session elsewhere so I can leave it up all the time and then remote into that box and tmux to catch up with whatever I missed 16:14
finanalyst any suggestions for a good IRC client. I'm using HexChat
[Coke] The discord bridge is not bad if you are used to discord.
I'm using irssi (text based mac client)
lizmat I use Textual on MacOS and am very happy with it :-) 16:15
[Coke] well, *on* mac it's not mac specific.
finanalyst I think I have a discord account, but I haven't used it much
Textual seems to be MacOS specific 16:17
jdv i use irssi in gnu screen but i get im not the norm
finanalyst Also I am offline and away from the laptop for significant periods of time
jdv whatever works:) 16:18
