02:38 < moritz> sorear: that error is questionable; when $.b is initialized, an 
                invocant needs to be somewhere, so you can just make it 

More recent discussion has indicated that has $.b = $.a shouldn't be allowed, and you need to use has $.b = $!a. However, this ticket is still valid, since Niecza doesn't accept the latter form either.
