We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

    Were you thinking something like this?
    Objects can always can, but a special can can can the usual can. But to see it's a special can you can:
    $check_that_can_with = UNIVERSAL::can($obj,'can') ne \&UNIVERSAL::can;
    But you can't catch the man who replaced the default can:
    my $can = \&UNIVERSAL::can; local $^W = 0; *UNIVERSAL::can = sub { $_[1] eq 'can' ? \&UNIVERSAL::can : &$can; };
    So can that man before he cans your can!
    (Sorry)
