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

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    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.
        Dear (not so) Anonymous Monk,
        since the name is WithDefaults, not WithDefault
        This makes obvious that WithDefaults wasn't such a good choice if a single s can change the meaning so much, IMO.
      Your making a clearly erroneous assumption (the name is ...Defaults) does not warrant replacing a good name with a lousy one.
        Dear (even less) Anonymous Monk,
        does not warrant replacing a good name with a lousy one
        I can't see how WithAlternatives is a lousy name (BTW, it was suggested in good faith) and I still think that it makes more sense. However, it's not for me to say whether the name must be changed (it's been in CPAN since 2002), I was just stating my opinion about the choice made because it seems confusing.
