isa Foo,Bar; # drops Bar and also spits out warning...
             # works same if you quote Bar, dies if Foo
             # is quoted or we're under strict
That's because it is using indirect object syntax.

Note that you can say:

isa Bar qw(Baz Bas Boo);
which is not so nice as there is no way to explain why "Bar" should be specified differently from "Baz", "Bas" and "Boo". Maybe a more consistent way of specifying multiple inheritance would be:
isa Bar, isa Baz, isa Bas, isa Boo;

main->isa(qw(Foo Bar)); # makes sense... pushes itself onto
                        # @ISA, though
This can be easily fixed in isa.pm:
-push @{caller().'::ISA'}, @_; +push @{caller().'::ISA'}, map {m#^main$# ? () : $_} @_;

... doesn't seem to be as clean of a solution as it could be.

I agree. I think I'll go back to just setting @ISA myself, and making sure they're run at compile time when I put several packages into one file.
