in reply to Subclassing Math::BigInt while keeping the import options

If your child class calls the base class's import, the base class will export to your package. If you can, use something like

sub import { ... do something ... goto &Base::Class::import; # Hide us from caller(). }

If you can't, hope that the base class uses Exporter, and use its export_to_level function instead of import.

[Lady_Aleena]: I was thinking about moving WorldBuilding to Random, since it is all randomness in that group anyway, but Random::World is the same length as WorldBuilding. I wouldn't be doing myself any favors.
