in thread RFC: Class::DispatchToAll

Will it also be possible to collect the return values of those method calls?
-- #!/usr/bin/perl for(ref bless{},just'another'perl'hacker){s-:+-$"-g&&print$_.$/}

    Yes. Each method will be called in the same context as the original call through EVERY::, and the collective return value will be:
    • a ref to an array of scalars (in scalar context)
    • a list of refs to arrays (in list context)
    That is, EVERY:: will aggregrate the individual return values, and return them in a form appropriate to the calling context.
      Should I then wait for your release and dump my code, wait for your release, benchmark and then dump the slower code, or still put Class::DispatchToAll on CPAN (in compliance with TMTOWTDI, especially as I might extend my code to do some other stuff (like width-first traversal, or returning the package a method was found in and the return value..))?
      -- #!/usr/bin/perl for(ref bless{},just'another'perl'hacker){s-:+-$"-g&&print$_.$/}

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
