From @ShimmerFairy

<ShimmerFairy> m​: say :16[16]
<camelia> rakudo-moar 98df93​: OUTPUT«16␤»
<ShimmerFairy> m​: say :16[1, 16]
<camelia> rakudo-moar 98df93​: OUTPUT«32␤»

Essentially, rakudo does the math on this form of radix without checking its place values if they're valid for the given radix.

From @AlexDaniel

I'm not entirely sure what is supposed to happen there.

With just one argument it acts as a pass-thru​:
say :16[16] # OUTPUT​: «9999»

And with two values it seems to do the math correctly​:

say :16[1,9999] # OUTPUT​: «10015»

So what should be done exactly? Should we just error out on too-large values (even though it seems to be functional)?
