Sometimes Perl's standard polymorphic method dispatch mechanism isn't
sophisticated enough to cope with the complexities of finding the right
method to handle a given situation.
Generally speaking, multiple dispatch is needed whenever two or more objects
belonging to different class hierarchies are going to interact, and we need to
do different things depending on the combination of actual types of those
objects. Typical applications that need this kind of ability include graphical
user interfaces, image processing libraries, mixed-precision numerical
computation systems, and most types of simulations.
