Minor correction:  while I had originally written a "Class::Trait"
module, the current code is actually the work of Stevan Little and I am
merely the maintainer.

Question:  are you saying that if I have this:

  package Foo;

  sub new { bless {} => shift }

  sub name { return "Some name" }

That this should automatically be considered a trait, too?  Currently
to make this is a trait you have to add "use Class::Trait 'base'" to
the package.

There are a number of reasons for this, but the most important is the
internal introspection mechanism involved.
