But, to be quite frank, TheDamian was a fool. (: To see this you need only note that many modules he wrote that were meant to be useful used source filters and it took him years to realize and own up to the fact that these modules were seriously flawed because of it.

No doubt I *am* a fool in many many ways. But this particular justification for that conclusion just doesn't hold water. The *only* module it might conceivably apply to is Switch.pm, which specifically has a LIMITATIONS section in the POD, clearly explaining the potential problems.
