No, but the fact that you have to use package globals to indicate inheritance, does indicate to me that inheritance was added later.

But... Everything was added later. Have you tried Perl 1.0? Almost everything we use now was bolted on later. And I'm glad it was.

Also, I'm glad they did this with a package global. Being able to change @ISA later has come in handy more than once for me.
