Couldn't one write ACME::Include based on source filters instead of the DB way you gave above?
Source filters are a bad idea in general, but note that this one does not attempt to parse perl code, so it can not be fooled by wierd-looking perl code like some source filters can be. I still don't say that soing such things would be a good idea, but it might be cleaner that the DB hack.
Here's my example, which just a quick draft, does not handle line numbers etc.
and second which has to be in the current dir when first is run:
Then, perl first prints a(1 2 3 4) b(5 6 7 8)
