Unfortunately, combining multiple roles with method attributes onto the 
same class totally fails right now.


with $_ for qw/ControllerRole1 ControllerRole2/; # Works

with qw/ControllerRole1 ControllerRole2/; # Attributes fail to show up.

This means that conflict resolution (one of the nicest features of 
roles) fails to work :/

I have fixes for this in the pipeline; as always, volunteers welcome to 
take them off my hands and finish them off if you want this before I get 
time... ;)
