Why not just
$objectref->method(@more_params)
? What are you gaining by your "method" (heh) except the chance to miss out on inheritance?

    The reason being is that I have a of languageX => \&init_languageX, and I want to just get the method funciton from the hash instead of doing a lot of ifs. But, i couldn't get the call to work without doing it my way. Why would it lose out on inherritance, if $self we got it like this:
    sub set_lang { my $self = shift; my $lang = shift; ... &{$lang_to_func{$lang}}(...); }
