Ticket #1705 (new deprecation)

0-args :main Subs will check passed arguments.

After 2.6 we'll enable check arguments of 0-args Subs which can break current :main Sub invocation.

For example

.sub "foo" :main
   say "Hello world"

will throw an exception if command-line arguments passed.

For updating from current behaviour :main Sub should declare .param pmc args :slurpy to work with any numbers of arguments.
