No it doesn't (immutable)?

I agree that all 'real' Moose classes shouldn't be breaking the meta  
method like this, but the fact is that there *IS* real code out there  
which is going to be broken by this, and it's something which we can  
_avoid_ breaking without too much effort..

Sure, we should be warning people, but breaking their applications  
when we don't _need_ to just seems silly.

Attached nasty hackery which makes my initial test pass, proving that  
it is possible..
