I've built several large (some very large) commercial OO production systems and never found Perl's OO lacking in any significant way.
Well, sure. But not everyone is as smart, or as disciplined as you. And even if they were, many of them work in large programming teams with other people who certainly aren't as smart, or as disciplined as you.
Such people really appreciate tools (and whips and chains) that make life simpler.
Personally, if I can use Perl's OO as I currently do I'll remain happy as a pig in mud.
Then you'll be wallowing contentedly for many years to come.
On the other hand, I suspect that you'll also come to appreciate how much easier and quicker Perl 6 makes it to build classes. And that eventually you may even enjoy the whip of design-by-contract or the chain of proper encapsulation.
C'mon! You know you want to! ;-)
