This is good, because I have a few more of these conditionals, and everywhere around them feels brittle and I feel pinched by them. These are thorns I can remove from my dreams as well. :-)

I am happy that I can refine code that I already have. I think I'm no longer envious of those LISP guys, living in their clouds of parentheses.

For the first time, I feel that I understand how a hierarchy would work, and in fact, have used them already with Tk.

A UI class might be at the top, a Session might inherit from that, and specify a group of recordings and data structures expressing the routing and processing specifics(as it already does in my procedural code).

I can see how each level can add its own subroutines in a neat way. I am gleeful that I can accomplish this directly using something lightweight like Object::Tiny. Encouraged by the simplicity, excited to get at these possibilities with less boilerplate, from which I would also like to liberate my dreams and waking hours.:-)

I am happy to think I can develop more succinct ways to say and get to what I want in code.
