As you've probably worked out by now, I'm not, nor ever likely to be, a Moose user.
Holy Crap! Really!!! Now it all makes sense! ;)
But I'm not critical of Moose.
Kinda, sorta, not really. But that is okay, we can take it, nothing should ever be above criticism. Perl is built on the foundation of TIMTOWTDI, which means that the language itself is flexible and can very easily be different things for different people.
