Using a cascaded if/elsif/else instead of individual methods looks terribly awkward to me. I think that's part of what OO and methods (or even subroutines in general) are supposed to help us avoid!

    Yes, the implementation is poor, but it is meant to be a simple demonstration. I tend to choose dispatch-table type patterns for such things, and if the normalization/etc. were more complex I might even have "private" subroutines to deal with the attributes.

    My post is more targetted toward interface than internal implementation; still, your point is a good one.
