Okay, so we've established that:

$x = any(3,4,5);
@l = $x.values.sort;

Leaves us with @l == (3,4,5), and that makes a fair amount of sense.


What do the following evaluate to:

@l1 = all(3,4,5).values.sort;

@l2 = one(3,4,5).values.sort;

@l3 = none(3,4,5).values.sort;

@l4 = any(all(1,2),all(3,4)).values.sort;


If C<.values> doesn't it cut it for these cases, what other forms of 
introspection are we going to allow on junctions, to determine what they 
are?



On a slightly different topic, do the following equivalences work:

any($a, $a) == $a

any($a,$a,$b) == any($a,$b)

any(any($a,$b),any($c,$d)) == any($a,$b,$c,$d)


all($a, $a) == $a

all($a,$a,$b) == all($a,$b)

all(all($a,$b),any($c,$d)) == all($a,$b,$c,$d)


none($a, $a) == undef

none($a,$a,$b) == none($a,$b)

none(none($a,$b),none($c,$d)) == none($a,$b,$c,$d)


one($a, $a) == false

one($a,$a,$b) == ($a == $b ?? undef ::  $b)
