It breaks the inheritance contract, not polymorphism per se (I think you've got the two concepts confused). Polymorphism doesn't depend on inheritance, e.g. Roles enable polymorphism without inheritance.

    No, polymorphism doesn't depend on inheritance, and I never claimed that it did. Polymorphism is generally an expected outcome of inheritance though. There are clearly other ways of allowing polymorphism though - roles as you say; also mocking, delegation, etc.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
      From the POD:
      The idea behind polymorphism is that if Bar inherits from Foo, then I should be able to use an object of type Bar wherever I'd normally use Foo.
      That makes it sound like you're equating polymorphism with inheritance.
