The problem I have with the above is how similar it is to this:


A little too close for comfort, personally. But that's just my opinion.
Then again, we can't make every syntax look radically different, and
they are unique.

And I'm assuming this only returns one element, right? Because if it
returns a list it's not a $scalar. I think by this:

   $a[[$i,$j,$k], [$x,$y,$z]];

You might actually mean this:

   @a[[$i,$j,$k], [$x,$y,$z]];
