Inheritance is not a requirement nor even desirable for my application.
It may not be for you, but this sounds like a really neat trick to keep in the toolbox, for similar issues. I would think that inheritance would work because the class would be compiled and its @ISA be set. Then, when a method is called, dispatch would take effect, right?
The idea is a little like C++ templates, except not quite so brain-meltingly complicated. -- TheDamian, Exegesis 6
