There's always Tie::RefHash - it works wonderfully for a hash of hard
ref keys. And you could always make a reference out of a number (and a
number out of a string), if you use Devel::Poiner::PP. Buit this is
bound to be a Bad Thing(tm).

But in my proposed implementation, the closure of hash per accessor, you
can't access the hashes properly. You need to know what they are. Beh.
It doesn't really matter.

Hmm, I should have figured. Perlmonks are obsessed with inside out
objects. Well, most of them, anyway.

I personally think it takes away your liberty cleaning up after someone
elses properly done mistakes.
