in thread O-O design, aggregation of objects

...except that you can instantiate an object without calling ->new, so the infinite loops you mention are easily avoided.

I'd still say "no" to save-immediately-on-create because it's likely to result in a number of spurious database records being created. (I don't know about the OP, but I sometimes instantiate temporary objects which have no reason to be stored persistently.)
