Right. And if one checks out MooseX::* on CPAN, it becomes evident that Moose itself is still developing and advancing. And since Moose itself is a library, updating it independently from Perl is a big win as well. I don't need to upgrade Perl and my whole ecosystem just to use a newer or better MooseX extension. Not mentioning the fact that Moose is optional, and its overhead can be skipped by falling back to pure Perl OO or lighter OO libraries when required. It all makes my job easier :)

[Corion]: Hmmm. I feel a Meditation coming on. I wrote a module, DBIx::PivotQuery, which returns a table-like set of rows (AoA) but some columns are generated from column values, like in an (Excel) pivot table or a ROLLUP command
[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
