I've definitely considered that.
While most of the modules I personally write tend to be OO these days, I have no problem at all using non-OO modules as long as it doesn't present limitations. I'm a huge fan of lazy coding and using someone else's code any chance I can (much love to CPAN), so I generally don't jump in to rewrite an existing module if I don't feel it's needed.
In this case, as I mention in my reply to BrowserUK, the need for multiple "instances" and the use of package state variables is causing me some issues that an OO version of the module would seem to cleanly solve.
