So you are complaining rather than proposing a tiny patch (to the tiny module) to replace sub{} with sub{$_[0]} ?

    Perhaps you mentioned the reference to overload? The needed changes to make the module do what I want are much bigger than what you said.

    Which wouldn't be a problem except that the changes also have the disadvantage of not being backwards compatible with the current module. (For instance the returned objects should be false rather than true, which could mess someone up who tests that an object is there by checking for truth.) That incompatibility is why I decided to not offer a patch.

[Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
[Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
[Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
[GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
