in thread How to get function's name inside of CODE attribute

I added in Attribute::Lexical to avoid the need to monkeypatch UNIVERSAL.

You don't have to read much of the code before you get to:

unshift @UNIVERSAL::ISA, "Attribute::Lexical::UNIVERSAL";

So, this module avoids adding methods to UNIVERSAL (I assume), but adding a super class after the fact is certainly also monkey patching.

(Yes, I actually implement attributes without monkey patching UNIVERSAL at all and much more simply and, IMHO, sanely and buttoning that up for CPAN is on my to-do list.)

    Is the code sane enough for github? or some other public code hosting site? I would like to see this.

      Actually, much of the code is included in Devel::Init. After the __END__ line is even the code I decided to leave out of Devel::Init that tries to provide compatibility with the first entrant, Attribute::Handlers.

      No, Devel::Init is not a tool for enabling developers to easily define their own attributes. But the code in Devel::Init only requires small additions and minor reworking for it to become that.

    I'm no fan of that myself, but it's less troublesome than putting all handlers in UNIVERSAL. I'll happily switch to a better solution that avoids modifying global behavior altogether.
