You're innovating faster than I can keep up with it. :-)
Yes. I'm trying to make Object::InsideOut as comprehensive as possible, hoping that will induce people to try it.
Can you talk about the design choices you've made a little bit more? From a quick skim of the code, it looks like you're using ... AUTOLOAD to check method calls against the foreign object(s), rather than using a foreign object as the blessed reference directly with the @ISA array. That does allow multiple foreign objects, but at the cost of incremental indirection.
Yes, the foreign method dispatching is done in AUTOLOAD. That was the suggested techique from the discussions I read. This allowed me to support multiple inheritance, as well. True, there is a performance trade-off with this form of dispatching, but it does provide maximal functionality.

The other feature this design provides is encapsulation. The foreign object is hidden from all but the inheriting class's code. This allows the class code to control access to the guts of hash-based objects.

Remember: There's always one more bug.
