in reply to Subclassing a class that uses an internal dispatch table

I'd probably make use of PadWalker like so:
use PadWalker 'peek_sub'; my $sub = \&Net::SMTP::Server::Client2::get_message; my $cmds = peek_sub($sub)->{'%_cmds'}; $cmds->{$_} = __PACKAGE__->can($_) || $cmds->{$_} for keys %$cmds;
Of course that won't support multiple subclasses, but it will work for the simple case of a single subclass. It's "a hack for a hack" if you will.
