   Nice, but, after several minutes thinking and testing my new pipe  
tobbaco, I just figured that this is a big organizational project  
that should be undertaken. There is no "Perl OO-Core" - no advisable  
way of implementing OO systems in Perl one could use as starting point.

   Obviously, I believe that all those questions will be addressed by  
Perl6. Is this correct?
