As to the gazillion modules, what's the alternative? Every programmer going out and making their own gazillion mistakes writing everything by hand?
That's like saying everyone should take a cab into work, instead of driving yourself and create car accidents.

We've already established that all the modules have their flaws (otherwise, we'd quickly agree what module to use). And frankly, inside-out objects are simple. Hardly more complicated than hash based objects.

Give programmers a bit of credit.

    That's an interesting way of selectively quoting what I said to shift the meaning. Perhaps you should have included my next sentence:

    At least CPAN modules, flawed as they might be, have the potential to benefit from some degree of peer review...

    Unlike cab drivers.

    If it wasn't for the DESTROY block issue I'd agree. However I've found it surprisingly easy to foul this up leading to memory leak issues that cause me more problems than the occasional development issue with encapsulation and typos.
