I'm sure this behavior is documented somewhere, but didn't see it. Do you know where it can be found?
Since new isn't a reserved word, how does perl know to pass the package name implicitly into that method in the first place? I could have just as
easily named the constructor 'bargle'. Is the package name passed implicitly on every method call? Or just the one where the object is blessed?
