    Thanks for looking, but that module doesn't do what the OP wants as far as I can tell.

      That's true... I assumed it did from the NAME section description :-(

      I guess that Hash::WithAlternatives should've been a more appropiate name for that module.

        Your assumption is clearly erroneous, since the name is WithDefaults, not WithDefault. That name is just fine, and quite superior to your suggestion.
        Your making a clearly erroneous assumption (the name is ...Defaults) does not warrant replacing a good name with a lousy one.
