Exporter::Simple, networking simple

[ #261 ]

Worked some more on Exporter::Simple, which uses attributes to make exporting variables (even lexicals!) and subroutines simple as you don't have to worry about Exporter's arrays and hashes.

Exporting lexicals was made possible/easy using Robin Houston's PadWalker module, which allows you to see which lexicals are defined in your scope.

Acme mentioned wireless networking in his journal; I have to agree that it's pretty cool wandering about with your powerbook downloading stuff - and no wires whatsoever. Let's see if we can get together a wireless network for YAPC::NA.

The lightning talk on aspect-oriented Perl has been approved, but it seems scary now to try and explain aspects in five minutes - apart from the fact that I've spent all time scheduled for aspects on Exporter::Simple... Oh well; it'll be a brief overview.
