Mmm ... I think part of my problem was that I'd assumed it was doing something 
  different than what it actually did (I expected it to work more like 
Class::C3 does, but of course NEXT supports something a little different so it 
can't work that way), and part was that the code used a couple of Evil Tricks 
that hadn't previously occurred to me.
