in reply to Modern Perl: The Book: The Draft

Chapter 7. Method Overriding and SUPER:

You may override methods in the default Perl 5 OO system as well as in Moose. Unfortunately, core Perl 5 provides no mechanism for indicating your intent to override a parent's method. Worse yet, any function you predeclare, declare, or import into the child class may override a method in the parent class simply by existing and having the same name.

This whole paragraph seems to say that Moose has none of these faults. But even in Moose a method may override simply by existing and having the same name since the override keyword is optional

    Thanks for all of your comments. How would you like me to credit you within the book?
