--! Bad saint, no cookie.

The statement that "Two AUTOLOADs cannot coexist amicably in the same inheritance tree" is factually incorrect and that's the only point that I am making.

I rarely use AUTOLOAD since there is usually a better alternative. Yes it can be used badly to produce ghastly code. However, just like local, it can occasionally be very useful. It is perfectly possible to write very straightforward non-obfu code with AUTOLOAD.

Talking about how to use AUTOLOAD well/badly is a good thing. Blanket statements that are factually incorrect are not (IMHO anyway. YMMV).
