Yes, but both modules still have plenty in common. Subclassing helps avoid code duplication; reading similar code often enlightens.

    There's no sence to subclasse a module that doesn't have the architecture that will do what you want. For example, there's no module, before lib::http, that with just the Perl CORE I can use other libraries in other location. This is not just about code and interface, is also about what happens in the background.
