It's confusing when someone does something like this: package Base; use Moose; use Subclass; has (...); package Subclass; use Moose; extends 'Base'; __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable; The subclass doesn't see any changes made to Base after 'use Subclass' (because it's immutable). This is fine, but we should try to tell those people they're doing it wrong. hdp.
