Subject: Documentation bug
The first example in the pod uses package B. Since package B has special meaning to perl, the inheritance tree is broken (@B::isa will contain Exporter instead of A). Merely renaming the package to pretty much anything else will fix it. For reference: http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=422324

Thanks! That'll teach me to use one-letter names (even in examples!)

I've fixed the example in the SYNOPSIS, by renaming the classes. I didn't change the latest examples that use A, B, C, etc, as I think they're fine to leave as is. Cheers, Neil
