Re^2: Dealing with blessed scalars when using YAML::XS::Load
in thread Dealing with blessed scalars when using YAML::XS::Load
Aliasing a package like that is not expected. There may be things that break in the face of it. So I reduced the number of things that have to deal with that aliased package to a single thing, @ISA. Then one doesn't have to worry about ambiguity in the code context or name of a method or ref-counting issues or some other problem that might result from the hackish aliasing.
