in thread conditional statements in list constructors

Good point; however, the way you'd normally dereference an arrayref generates a fatal runtime error:

$ perl -le ' my $think_this_is_an_arrayref = \(qw{one two three}); print qq{Probably not dereference like this: $$think_this_is_an_ar +rayref}; print qq{Probably would dereference like this: @$think_this_is_an_ +arrayref}; ' Probably not dereference like this: three Not an ARRAY reference at -e line 4.
