in thread use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;

Wouldn't you have to transform Foo::Bar::Baz to Foo/Bar/Baz.pm, to make it work with require?

    No, because it is a source filter. It changes source such as:
    use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;
    to:
    BEGIN {*{"Foo::"} = \*{"Very::Long::Module::Name::"}}use Very::Long::M +odule::Name;
    essentially aliasing the stashes of the Foo namespace with the Very::Long::Module::Name namespace at compile time.

    So this is before anything is required under "use"s hood.

    No. That was the point of the string eval.
