Interesting idea. You might also want to take a look at TheDamian's Class::Multimethods which seems to have a similar purpose.

    Actually, if chromatic's agreeable, I'd very much like to steal the idea of contextual dispatch and roll it into the new version of Class::Multimethods that I'll be releasing early next year. With the appropriate blame attribution, of course! ;-)
      You're quite welcome to the idea. I think I'll put 0.02 up on the CPAN later in the interim and work on integrating optional Want support.

      As a side note, Class:Multimethods did lead me to this idea. :)

        Great. There's an elegant circularity to it then.

        I'll probably wait till you've ironed out the wrinkles that are sure to be involved in integrating Want, and then steal all the solutions. ;-)
