I've reached the point where I'd rather use MethodMaker (or something similar) to write classes, as opposed to writing them from scratch. I think I would have arrived here sooner if MethodMaker was part of the core distribution.

This makes me wonder why Class::Struct is standard but MethodMaker is not ??

Update:After further meditation, I realise that there are many Class automators on CPAN; although I feel that this issue is important enough to be addressed by a core module, putting any one of these in the core would be unfair to all the others (its hard enough to chose one for personal use). Thank you all for sharing your thoughts.
