I know that it's common not to have separate set_foo methods, but I still think they're the right thing. That way it's easy to set up attributes that are read only or read/write accessible to the outside world. If you just have the single method you're reliant on people reading the docs to find out whether they can call the accessor with a new value.

You're bang on about returning $self though.
