I think a lot of us are.  In medium and large-scale systems it's so
easy to shoot yourself in the foot by mis-spelling a hash key and
wasting an hour tracking down the problem in the wrong place.  Sure,
using method calls can solve part of the problem, but the reality is
that a lot of things just aren't OO (yet?).
