And here we see why broadly-offered criticism is risky.

On the contrary I specifically mentioned that there would be a few such modules included in the "bad list":

    And there are probably a few in there that cant be better named because they have some special extra property, but even still I think the namespace is a just a big mess.

So I think I preemptively resolved this point. Anyway, IMO that module should be named Tie::Any::Static or something along those lines. In fact, in my eyes the fact you cant tell that module can handle any type of tie just by looking at the name says to me its badly named.
