but this is exactly opposite the usual concern when people write multiple versions of the same method; namely, to override functionality present at higher levels in the hierarchy!

When using this module, I do not want to override methods, but explicitly call all of them (and collect the return values). You can still use normal Perl behaviour, Class::DispatchToAll is meant as an alternative to the Perl Inheritance mechanism, not as a replacement. Only use it when you need it. And it only is used when you explictly call for it...

However NEXT already does just this.

As frag pointed out, you would have to alter each and every method to include $_[0]->NEXT::method() at the end. Doesn't seems lazy enough to me...
