in thread what would you like to see in perl5.12?

I still believe there's a lot of potential in attributes, if only implemented properly.
First have a look at how properties and traits are completely unified with object attributes and roles/mixins in Perl 6, which pretty much covers all of your points without thinking of attributes as a separate facility. I have this crazy notion that "implemented properly" must be preceded by "designed properly", you see... :-)

    Right, but I don't know that Perl 5 has the luxury to do any better than "designed well enough".
