in thread perlcritic and OO Perl (including Moose) idioms

That was the first thing we did to verify what was being complained about. Yes, that works, but ...

1) we really don't want to replace my $self = shift; in hundreds, if not thousands, of places in our code base.

2) my $self = shift; is what I would consider a very popular idiom that has been in use since (I suspect) many of us first read about OO Perl and how it relates to farm animals. (BTW, where can I find a copy of that very informative original tutorial?)

3) Most importantly, it does nothing to address the following code that allows for rather flexible arg passing (not saying if this is good or bad, just that this concept is pretty standard, too.):

my $self = shift; my %args = @_ == 1 ? ( period => shift ) : @_;

I appreciate the response, but unfortunately that has already been viewed as a less-than-optimal resolution.
