Can't locate object method "import" via package "Misspelled" ... ?

The import method is special cased to do nothing when it doesn't exist, in
order for "use" to not throw errors when a package doesn't implement it.
Interestingly, methods in UNIVERSAL also don't end up throwing errors since
they just use the default implementation even if the package doesn't exist.

AFAIK this is not documented (the docs say there is absolutely nothing
special about 'import').

Maybe this should be mentioned in perlmod.
