in thread Detecting function vs method in an AUTOLOAD?

There's a lot of code out there that presumes that nothing can detect the difference between method and subroutine calls. This is deliberate, and is thus a feature, not a bug.
Thus the resulting mess in CGI.pm for example, trying to distinguish between method and function, is by design? Jeezes.
