  Description     : A pragma to use the C3 method resolution order algortihm

 This is currently an experimental pragma to change Perl 5's standard method 
 resolution order from depth-first left-to-right (a.k.a - pre-order) to the 
 more sophisticated C3 method resolution order.
 C3 is the name of an algorithm which aims to provide a sane method resolution 
 order under multiple inheritence. It was first introduced in the langauge 
 Dylan, and then later adopted as the prefered MRO (Method Resolution Order) 
 for the new-style classes in Python 2.3. Most recently it has been adopted as 
 the 'canonical' MRO for Perl 6 classes, and the default MRO for Parrot objects
 as well.
