I have no problem with including some Big OO Framework in the core
distribution.  It's just that a document about something so fundamental
to the language as OO should not need to go outside the core to get
the overwhelming majority of its point across.

If the conclusion is that you should *not* do OO in Perl *without* 
a Big OO Framework, then Perl has to have one of those in its core.
