in reply to RFC: Class::DispatchToAll

As a C++ programmer, I note that some methods work this way, namely destructors and assignment.

I agree with the comment that the "normal" use of supplying your own definition is to override the behavior, not co-operate with multiple versions.

However, I think it would be useful to have an "every parent" dispatch. Each class's implementation works for that (final put-together) class. When you're putting together a new one, you are responsible for coordinating the activity of your direct parent classes; they in turn deal with their parents and members.

Having an every-parent displatch would take the place of "super" which doesn't make much sence in a multiple-inheritence environment.

[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
