  • Turns out that this particular form of sort already exists in the Perl 6 spec -- it was just in an odd place. In Synopis 3, we have:

    The advantage of the method form is that it can be used in places that
    require tighter precedence than C<~~> provides:
     
        sort { $^a.M <=> $^b.M }, @files
     
    though that's a silly example since you could just write:
     
        sort { .M }, @files

    So, it's just Synopsis 29 that needs to be updated, and as of this morning Moritz++ has made that change. So this is indeed an official part of the language, and we can go on remarking about how cool Perl 6 is.
