Hmm, I am not sure it is a good idea to do this kind of things. It appears you're really tampering with the symbol tables. This is sort of similar to symbolic references (which are very much frown upon). Or, maybe, this kind of construct should be reserved only for special cases where you want to extend the language, but perhaps shouldn't be done for regular coding.

Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
