Something like:

    # Do something then proceed with call "as usual"
    method foo ([EMAIL PROTECTED])
      ./do_something_new(123, 'abc');

    # Pull off some args, do something, then proceed with call "as usual"
    method foo ()
      ./do_something_else(val => delete %_<xyz>);

All methods get a slurpy %_ unless you declare your own.  But you probably
want to avoid "super" semantics and write that:

    method foo ()
      ./do_something_else(val => %_<xyz>);

I've also taken the liberty of deleting your delete, on the assumption
that your "next" method might want to see the same argument and do
something else with it.  A set of "next" methods need a consistent
parameter namespace in any event, so there's no harm in leaving the
parameter in %_, and some performance benefit in not doing something
better performed by GC (we hope).
