in thread perl OO - to use or not to use

With OO, the subroutine "meth" could be inherited (exist in another namespace from which the object inherits). When called as a subroutine, the subroutine must exist in the current namespace (or some pretty heavy AUTOLOAD magic should be involved).

    Other important difference is that in case of OO syntax caller in general doesn't know how $obj will handle method call (i.e. caller doesn't know which subroutine in which package is going to be called) as it depends on the class of $obj.
