Union operator.

Returns the union of all of its arguments. This creates a new Set that contains all the elements its arguments contain if none of the arguments are a Bag, BagHash, Mix or MixHash.

say <a b d>  bag(<a a b c>); # OUTPUT: «Bag(a(2) b c d)␤»

say <a b d>  bag(<a a b c>); # OUTPUT: «Bag(a(2) b c d)␤»
