Perl knows that hash keys must be scalars, therefore assumes quotes.
Perl hash keys can be numeric scalars or string scalars, perl doesn't care.

I also notice variation in the use of quotes within the same 
declaration, and with the use of single- verses double-quotes on values :)

Just goes to show how rich and helpful Perl is.... by not falling over 
on the inconsequentials ;-)
