I am with you on the use of delegation. However, you could take your example one step further and use dependency injection to fully decouple the two classes.

package Bar; sub new { my ($class, %args) = @_; bless \%args, $class; } sub wonk { my $self = shift; $self->{_foo}->wonk(@_); # delegation! } package main; use Bar; use Foo; my $bar = Bar->new(_foo => Foo->new());
Now Bar is fully independent of Foo (coupled only by the implied "interface" which consists of the wonk() method). This also makes testing easier.
