in thread use base 'XYZ' and exporting

If I was really serious about doing this, I'd be patching base (so that's it's not hardwired to caller(0)) and creating a new module. The new module is because you can't go making base call import() all of a sudden.

The point of my original post was really about the interface and how with some fiddling it can support everything. Whatever preferences people might have for defaults, I'd argue that not supporting all options (when supporting them is essentially zero cost) is definitely not the right thing.

In this case I'm stuck with the current, so OAOO can't work, something's got to give. If I must break OAOO then I think it's better to break it OAOO :) I don't think I've ever use a base class's name in the body of a module, if I did I was probably doing something very naughty and OAOO would be the least of my worries.

Anyway, it looks like we're only arguing about degrees here rather than principles.
