[perl #118561] [PATCH] failures loading modules are ignored when sub-package exists
Message ID:
I don't really think what Moose is doing here is reasonable.

The only reason it worked without this change was the declaration of the
Foo::Foo and Foo::Meta::Instance packages.  That causes base to think
that the Foo package exists.  The actual declaration of Foo, or it
calling metaclass->import, don't have any impact.

I think the test was only working accidentally, and the thing it was
testing doesn't really have anything to do with issue directly.  It will
also be very simple to fix.

I also looked at the other two modules from #118655.  One has a bug that
was reported in January that is now causing a test failure.  The other
is due to a circular dependency between its modules.
