I think (hope!) that smart match is mature enough at this point that you can rely on its behavior not changing for such a basic case.

Nevertheless, another way of solving the problem is always useful.

    I imagine that Perl will continue to support the old behaviour by default and an explicit use statement will enable the new behaviour via feature. (Much like how use 5.010 enables state, say, etc.)

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
