Yes, let .foo still mean $_.foo, unconditionally, please.

The `./` is nice, but I'm willing to give up the syntax in favor of
letting .foo always mean $_.foo.

Autrijus joked? about $?.method once (instead of ./method), in case we
need any more bad alternatives for $?SELF.method.  But I also trust
@larry, or %larry, or even $larry, to make a decent choice that will
serve the community well.

So long as .foo (pretty please) means $_.foo all the time (with sugar on
top?).
