Here's a different way, also using a 'as.pm', but no source filters. Usage:
use as Name => "Very::Long::Class::Name", args ...;
And this is the code:
package as; use strict; use warnings; sub import { my $class = shift; die "Usage: 'use as Name => Very::Long::Class::Name [args...]'" unless @_ >= 2; my $caller = caller (); my ($short, $long) = splice @_ => 0, 2; no strict 'refs'; @{"${short}::ISA"} = $long; eval <<" --"; package $caller; require $long; $short -> import (\@_) if $short -> can ("import"); -- die $@ if $@; } 1;

This follows a similar syntax as 'use if CONDITION, MODULE => ARGS'.
