Re: implications of using Any::Moose
Message ID:
Yup - I realize now I was using an older version of Any::Moose. The  
newest one works.

To be complete, I still ought to run all my tests twice, once with  
Mouse and once with Moose. (But it's better than testing all the  
combinations!) Any creative ideas on how to arrange that, beyond the  
obvious duplication of all test files?
