Commit 4fa0b80 to perl5.git merged in the postderef branch, allowing Perl
5.20.0 to experimentally support:

  $x->[y]{z}->$*->w->@*

...instead of...

  @{ ${ $x->[y]{z} }->w }

Acceptance criteria for this feature in a future perl release are, at a
minimum:

  * no horrible known bugs
  * no major known inequalities between the two forms
