Effectively, currently. I've used the two together happily, although
you need to be aware that Method::Signatures is run-time, not compile-time
(and I haven't tested it with Devel::BeginLift, though you're welcome to
file a bug if that doesn't work :)

Devel::Declare is separate because it provides mechanism, not policy.

Somebody was working on a p6-style-but-with-Moose-TCs version of a
method keyword but I dunno what happened to that; I'd poke the Moose
mailing list to find out.
