I get what you're saying and I don't discount the depth of thought done; there is necessarily going to be a period of fire from a lot of people with highly refined mental models of perl/Perl. Probably most of them also have not thought much about this either (or at all) - other than hoping that when the day of OOP Perl comes, the result is recognizable and coherent with their existing mental model (and even more fun!).
