-The C<&&> and C<||> operators are smarter about list context
-and return C<()> on failure in list context rather than C<Bool::False>.
-The operators still short-circuit, but if either operator would return
-a false value, it is converted to the null list in list context so
-that the false results are self-deleting. (If this self-deleting
-behavior is not desired, put the expression into item context rather
-than list context.) This self-deletion is a behavior of the operators
-themselves, not a general property of boolean values in list context, so
-either of:
-
- @foo = so($a||$b);
- @foo = not($a||$b);
-
-is guaranteed to insert exactly one boolean value into C<@foo>.
