Yes, it's perfectly possible to have AUTOLOADs in the same inheritance tree. You can even have them dispatch to one another. And, this would be a very obfuscated version of spaghetti programming. (Yes, spaghetti that's further obfu'ed!)
Think for a second about how you would go about maintaining that kind of programming. I know which one I'd prefer to maintain!
(By maintain, I mean that there was a wizard who wrote the software, N normal humans who extended it, and now I am handed the mess.)
Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose
I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
