Programming in Perl is choices all the way down. An OO standard library would make it a lot easier to write Perl in a way that avoids having to come up with similar or the same solutions to common computing tasks, but, ... sustained object-orientation in Perl is difficult because the concept and mechanisms were bolted onto the language as an afterthought, and because it's optional, so one has to oscillate between this paradigm and others, i.e. some things are objects, most things are not, so when using Perl you have to constantly reaffirm your object-orientation. What do you think?
