Users porting from the v1 versions of Class::MethodMaker would do well to observe the following:
This class method is deprecated. It was a way round the fact the C::MM works out what class to create methods in by looking up the calling stack. It is unfortunate, for the first C::MM class in the calling stack that sets ima_method_maker to be false gets the method --- that may not be what is wanted (i.e., if one derived class calls another for C::MM work).
By calling create_methods, the target class may is explicitly specified in the argument list.
