SYNOPSIS ^

    use Spoon::Base '-Base';

DESCRIPTION ^

Base class for application plugins. Provides basic functionality to all modules inheriting from this class.

These subroutines are meant to be called bare, not as an object-method call.

Inherited by all subclasses. Put your class initialization stuff here.
