Huh. That would work. Although it's more at the definition level of
things. In my case, it would only happen during the inflate during AxKit
usage, but not for normal perl usage.

Then again, maybe it's just a matter of rearranging the code that the
taglib spits out.

I wonder if creating a seperate has_a would be evil?

Handel::Cart->items gets me the normal items decalred by the package..
Handel::Cart->nonupdate_items gets me the items with the special
inflation that turns off autoupdate...
