in thread multiple method calls against the same object, revisited

Yeah, you pretty much just wrote what I did in RFC: Class::Proxy::MethodChain. Now make a root node about it, get some well-reasoned skeptic comments, mull over it for a year or so, and then write the code I posted in the root node of this thread. :-) As I said, I've gone through at least a dozen approaches and logical next steps with this thing and it's not likely you'll be able to surprise me as long as you stick to the obvious ideas — sorry.

The problem with this group of solutions, as others said in that thread and as I have come to understand with the experience gained since that node (see Mutator chaining considered harmful), is that method chaining is not a good idea.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    Well it wasn't realy meant as an end all solution, thought its growing on me. It is not an area I claim either expertise or experience. ;) BTW isn't method chaining (the way I handled it here) the same as your multiple methods? I'm not messing with the class or anything, just proxying along. Either way i think you've got a cool idea and i can't wait to play with it in Perl 6 in X years. ;)
