Yes.  As long as you want to be able to call a SUPER:: method from 
outside of the context of the package.  Only quibble here is that 
that's not something that one should(TM) do.  Admittedly, you want to 
be able to do that in tests and probably don't want to have to declare 
a package in your tests.  Furthermore, since perl allows you to call a 
super method from main, you don't want it to break (at least not 

Taking another look at this, I wonder if you really need the autoload 
for super if you switch to method injection.  The only reason that the 
current caller(1) incantation works seems to be that caller is the
