Thank you. - yes, this is hand-rolling, a workaround, and IMHO Attribute::Handlers should shoehorn FETCH_<type>_ATTRIBUTES methods into the caller's namespace, if not already there yet. Best thing to do would be patching Attribute::Handlers, but since I haven't done much with attributes yet, and haven' got (yet) a full understanding neither of what's going on inside Attribute::Handlers nor why it is written as it is; and since the POD states
There are undoubtedly serious bugs lurking somewhere in code this funky
:-) Bug reports and other feedback are most welcome.
it is quite easy for me to abstain from adding bugs - and patching code of TheDamian's make is a terrible thing to do... ;-)
You could send TheDamian "other feedback", though.
