That also does a string eval, actually. See the _require sub in Module/Pluggable/Object.pm. Maybe I'm just barking up the wrong tree - I figured that something that's not uncommon (requiring a class at runtime, from a variable) could be done in a "best practices" sort of way. Apparently not. This seems strangely un-TIMTOWDI.
