What's stopping you from using procedural programming?

sub my_serialize { my $obj = shift; if (check_some_condition($obj)) { return freeze replace($obj) } return freeze $obj; # serialize $obj as is }; my $data = my_serialize($tree)

    $tree may be an arbitrarily complex structure and I just want to replace some of the objects inside at serialization time.

    Your code can only be used to replace the top object.

      Not quite understand. replace() sub here _can_ replace just _some_ of the inner objects of $tree
        Oh, but then, I would have to traverse and clone the data structure myself, something that is far for easier in the general case.
