Description : Create method aliases
The traditional way to create a method alias (provide an alternate
name for a method) is simply a GLOB alias. While this works fine for
functions, it does not work for methods overloaded by a subclass.
Instead, Method::Alias creates a number of methods in the caller's
package to call the real method. It is designed to be used as a pragma,
to which you provide a set of pairs of method names.
(This is needed for the current upstream version of libtest-tap-model-perl.
It will be maintained by the Debian Perl Group.)
