Your point is a good one. It is necessary to hand-roll methods that do anything non-simple, like keeping is_from_west_coast() in the correct state.

Because of that, C:MM can only be used for simple methods. In my case, that means C:MM methods are usually private methods, and public methods are hand-rolled.

I am looking forward to automatic method constructors getting smarter in the future. I could imagine a module that combines something like Params::Validate with C:MM, like so:

use Class::MethodMaker optional => [ 'zone_file' => [ 'no spaces', 'alpha only', 'uppercase', 'error on parameter failure' ] ];
