While waiting for an answer, I've been playing with a few ideas. I've touched on passing hashes into the constructor, as well as lists. I guess I was hoping that it could be done in what I view to be a simplistic way instead of either handling cases where I look for the existence of x to determine which route to apply, or by having multiple methods which are constructors (in the sense that they bless) that follow no particular naming convention. Thanks for the confirmation that I wasn't overlooking something (I'm just now dabbling in the black arts of Perl OO, and have not yet purchased the OO Perl book).
