Hi Jie,

If I temporarily disable B::Hooks::OP::Check, as shown below, then it tells me it was included from Devel::Declare, which was in turn (indireclty) included from Method::Signatures::Simple.

I am not the author of either Catalyst or ShinyCMS, so unfortunately I don't know any more in-depth details off the top of my head.

Does that answer your question?

Thanks,
~ Will
