Summary: Report errors from perspective of caller of a "clan" of modules
This module is based on "''" from Perl 5.005_03. It has been
modified to skip all package names matching the pattern given in the "use"
statement inside the "'qw()'" term (or argument list).

Suppose you have a family of modules or classes named "Pack::A", "Pack::B"
and so on, and each of them uses "'Carp::Clan qw(^Pack::);'" (or at least
the one in which the error or warning gets raised).

Thus when for example your script "" calls module "Pack::A", and
module "Pack::A" calls module "Pack::B", an exception raised in module
"Pack::B" will appear to have originated in "" where "Pack::A" was
called, and not in "Pack::A" where "Pack::B" was called, as the unmodified
"''" would try to make you believe ':-)'.

This works similarly if "Pack::B" calls "Pack::C" where the exception is
raised, et cetera.

In other words, this blames all errors in the "'Pack::*'" modules on the
user of these modules, i.e., on you. ';-)'

The skipping of a clan (or family) of packages according to a pattern
describing its members is necessary in cases where these modules are not
classes derived from each other (and thus when examining '@ISA' - as in the
original "''" module - doesn't help).

The purpose and advantage of this is that a "clan" of modules can work
together (and call each other) and throw exceptions at various depths down
the calling hierarchy and still appear as a monolithic block (as though
they were a single module) from the perspective of the caller.

In case you just want to ward off all error messages from the module in
which you "'use Carp::Clan'", i.e., if you want to make all error messages
or warnings to appear to originate from where your module was called (this
is what you usually used to "'use Carp;'" for ';-)'), instead of in your
module itself (which is what you can do with a "die" or "warn" anyway), you
do not need to provide a pattern, the module will automatically provide the
correct one for you.

I.e., just "'use Carp::Clan;'" without any arguments and call "carp" or
"croak" as appropriate, and they will automatically defend your module
against all blames!

In other words, a pattern is only necessary if you want to make several
modules (more than one) work together and appear as though they were only
