The impact of this is that if you're looking for the definition of
the subroutine Mail::SpamAssassin::PerMsgStatus::leave_helper_run_mode,
you can tear your hair out looking in PerMsgStatus.pm only to discover
that it *actually* lives in Dns.pm.

The impact is unmaintainable code, frustration, and irritation. :-)
