Catalyst breaks regular subroutine attributes. Apparently, it tries to
parse them all so other code never gets the chance to parse them. I've
seen this problem before while using a module (which used subroutine
attributes) along with Catalyst and I decided to work around it
instead of looking for a proper fix.

Good luck. Hopefully someone else can come up with solution other than
using Catalyst's own attribute handling framework.
