Ok, I've read the doc, and it talks about attributes being a short hand
for attributes::->import( sth => sth, sth), but what does that do ? 
I may miss on something very cool and important for perl programming,
and the syntax is nice, but what can I do with it ? from the doc I
didn't understand the mechanics (It certainly does not expand on what
import() does. I tried to read the source for that, but didn't
understand it either).

A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on.
