I went to go vote for this bug report/enhancement request, but I can't
exactly find it. Are you referring to 741, 3753, 6820, or 6949?
BZ#3753 seems the closest although 741 has more accumulated votes
(8/1). And 6949 has 5 votes although it's somewhat a side effect of
not having a generic ability to specify "@" in scripts. And 6820 has
more votes than all the others combined, although it deals only with
the special case of passing a reference to an array element.
