Also consider e.g. Data::Leaf::Walker for existing examples of walker subs.

    IMHO Data::Leaf::Walker can't be used in this particular task of changing leave values.

    Or can you see a possibility to pass an absolute key-path which selects only the deepest leaves?

    And the each-method will only return copies which can't be manipulated.

    OTOH generating an iterator is for sure an interesting alternative.

      No arguments that it may or may not be appropriate in this case.   I mention it mainly to point out (as other Monks have, since) that “canned” walkers also exist, which might (or might not) be suitable.
