Subject: Inherited coercions have too high priority
Download (untitled) / with headers

I'm having an issue with my Type::Tiny type library. I have a type defined as a hashref with certain keys, defined with the Dict type. Some of those keys have their own types, with coercions, so i added coercion => 1 to the declaration of my type. Now, I want to add a coercion to my type of hashref from a hashref with different keys. My coercion fails, b/c the inherited coercions are happening before the one that I defined myself. Is this intended? If so, how can I work around the issue?

I'm currently working around the issue by defining my actual type as a base type, and then declaring the real type with ->plus_coercions, which has the priority rules that I expect.

Using ->plus_coercions would be what I'd generally suggest. Have you got some example code I can look at though?
