in reply to Remove bless reference or class/package name from method arguments

May I ask, if it isn't tied to the class, why is it a method in the first place?

    Static methods have a long history in OOP. Just because it operates at the level of the class without referencing any details of a specific instance doesn't mean it's not tied to the class.

      Alright then. I think I still wouldn't want to do this though, but merely out of maintainability issues. Foo::bar and Foo->bar are not the same, and I wouldn't expect them to be. After all, if you'd want to make a method that accepts an instance as first argument as the invocant, it wouldn't work anymore.
