Andrew, thank you for posting this message, I was getting a bit annoyed
at writing follow-ups to myself.

The definitive and final first discovery of this technique was on May
1st, 1994.

Now that mystery has been cleared up, are there any other standard
idioms for which we need to find the discoverer?

Already known are:
-p foo&&&   Piers
-p }{       Abigail
"@{[]}"     Larry
-p $\=...   I claim this one for myself

Does anyone else want to claim a golf trick?
