Ok. I agree with you, for that instance. However, how do you handle syntactic-sugar methods that are instance-specific?

    That is something that probably comes down to a case-by-case basis, so I don't want to give any hard rules on it. What I do want is to stop people from using AUTOLOAD to handle accessors/mutators when other solutions are available. This seems to be the most common use of AUTOLOAD, and it needs to stop. (Please direct flames twards tchrist :)

      What about soft rules? :-)
