Not surprisingly, not one minute after posting that I discovered a problem.  Although everything
works, I'm still getting the corrupted @ISA error.  This is the more surprising because although
it *claims* not to be a child of HTML::Embperl::Req, it's able to call all of the parent methods.
 In fact, some experimentation showed that after doing all the @ISA modification, UNIVERSAL::isa($r,
$class) returns false for all classes except the class of $r itself--whether they are direct
base classes, or several generations off. 

My guess is that there is a bug in Perl (I'm using 5.6.0) that is causing the method cache
to not become invalidated.  Everything works, you just get the warning.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
