    It's the and more thing I don't like about If you just need for setting @ISA at compile time, it's a lot of baggage that you're schlepping along.

    And on the other hand, is not doing enough: if you need a module's import method called, you still need to either use the module with the right parameters before calling, or you need to call the import yourself afterwards.
