I think this would require changes to IO::All as well (Ingy, are you reading this?). The normal way of doing this would be to create a module called IO::All::FILE, similar to IO::All::FTP etc. This is trivial and can be done in five minutes. This module should be loaded automatically by IO::All when it sees a file URL. The problem is that there exists already a module called IO::All::File (note the case difference), which causes two problems. One is that this could be a mess in case-insensitive filesystems. But second and perhaps more important is that IO::All tries to load IO::All::File before it tries to load IO::All::FILE. A quick hack for dealing with that is to swap the if and elsif in IO::All::autoload_class() to give higher precedence to all-caps module names. But perhaps Ingy has a more elegant solution in mind.
