Dirk Koopman:
> Note the use of the word "reliably"

To put my earlier rant in rather more succinct terms:

    * Reliability is a function of determinism.
    * Perl (and by extension the ->can method) is deterministic.
    * Ergo it is reliable.
    * Your programming may not or may not be deterministic. That's up to you.
