in thread new features in perl5 - who needs it?

It was basically Brandon Black bitching about how trying to change MRO (method resolution order) in Perl 5 was a pain and could someone do something about it. I recall the reason being that it was a biggest cause of slowdowns in Moose. Nicholas Clark dared him to write a patch, which he did. The rest, as they say, is history.

So sort of both, really :)

    Actually it wasn't Moose, but DBIx::Class where it was causing the issue (via the Class::C3 module). Moose didn't get support for C3 MRO until much later.

    But either way, Brandon++
