SYNOPSIS

  package Foo;
  
  use metaclass 'InstanceCountingClass';
  
  sub new  {
      my $class = shift;
      $class->meta->new_object(@_);
  }

  # ... meanwhile, somewhere in the code

  my $foo = Foo->new();
  print Foo->meta->get_count(); # prints 1
  
  my $foo2 = Foo->new();
  print Foo->meta->get_count(); # prints 2
