Buried deep within some code, someone used a module (Test::Most 0.03)
which exports a 'set' function. They weren't actually using that
module. It was just leftover cruft. Unfortunately, the parent class
of that module inherited from Class::Accessor.
Test::Most exports 'set' and Class::Accessor calls a 'set' method.
I'm trying to think of the best way to deal with this. My first
thought is to create a drop in replacement for Exporter which will not
export a function if caller->can($function) *unless* the person
explicitly lists it in the import list with a unary plus:
use Test::Most plan => 3, '+set';
Are there better strategies?
