The documentation for readpipe indicates that it is the internal function
implementing qx//, but there is no backreference in the documentation for
the qx// operator or the use of backticks for I/O. I suggest adding a
sentence like the following at the end of the first paragraph of both of
these sections: and

This operator is internally implemented via the
L<readpipe|perlfunc/readpipe EXPR> function after interpolation.
