=head1 NAME

Class::MOP::Object - Base class for metaclasses

=head1 VERSION

version 2.2011

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This class is a very minimal base class for metaclasses.

=head1 METHODS

This class provides a few methods which are useful in all metaclasses.

=head2 Class::MOP::???->meta

This returns a L<Class::MOP::Class> object.

=head2 $metaobject->dump($max_depth)

This method uses L<Data::Dumper> to dump the object. You can pass an
optional maximum depth, which will set C<$Data::Dumper::Maxdepth>. The
default maximum depth is 1.

=head2 $metaclass->throw_error($message)

This method calls L<Class::MOP::Mixin/_throw_exception> internally, with an object
of class L<Moose::Exception::Legacy>.
