If you're going the OO way (and I think you should, together with XP's unit-testing approach), then perltootc has some nifty conventions for using Class data vs. Object data, "Eponymous Hashes" and "Translucent Attributes".

You'll even even find a good excuse for manipulating the Symbol Table in some cases... something to be very suspicious about normally.

Just my $0.02
