"I didn't say which Tuesday."

Last night and this morning, I built and installed this branch and I updated a
branch of Dist-Zilla to use this syntax:

  https://github.com/rjbs/Dist-Zilla/commit/f48dcea
  https://github.com/rjbs/Dist-Zilla/commit/67a06a1

When I started, I was wondering whether ->@[] wouldn't have been better after
all.  By the time I was finishing, trying both syntaxes, I felt very good about
->@*.

All tests successful.

That said, although the code base is largish, the usages are not highly varied.
I'll try some more extensive testing soon.
