  • Why does this need an entire module?

    use constant Customer => 'My::Company::Namespace::Customer';
    use constant Preferred => 'My::Company::Namespace::Preferred::Customer';

    my $cust = Customer->new;
    my $pref = Preferred->new;

    I've used this… not-even-a-trick on several occasions, FWIW.

    Note how it makes no difference in the actual code, just makes effective use of what's already in the core. (And you could even do without constant.pm using prototyped subs, but that is too opaque for my taste.)
