[PATCH] correct errors / omissions in documenting DOES
Message ID:

L<perlobj> didn't document DOES, although it documents other UNIVERSAL methods.
I think this is a mistake that should be corrected by replacing the perlobj
documentation of these methods with a single paragraph and a link to
L<UNIVERSAL>, but I took the cheap route for now.

The documentation of DOES in UNIVERSAL is incorrect, as it seems to contradict
itself and to imply that by default a class only does UNIVERSAL, when in fact a
class does itself and all its superclasses.

If no one objects loudly, I will probably follow up with a patch to cut down
perlobj's documentation of the UNIVERSAL methods in not too long.
