Possibly not. People keep saying that OO is slow, but there are no good
examples of OO code to benchmark.
perl5-porters would happily receive sample code that hammers perl5 so
that it can be profiled to find where in the perl5 source the bottleneck is

I suspect that perlbench would also not object to OO code for benchmarking.
