in reply to package Foo; isa Bar; why not?

Aside from slightly different syntax, why should this go in the core when base is already there and already does the same thing and more?

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

    And on the other hand, base.pm 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 base.pm, or you need to call the import yourself afterwards.

    So yes, I don't like base.pm.
