This is certainly what I'd like to see. Mid level programmers taken to
the next level.

We need more good perl programmers where I work, and this is where they
fall down. Writing clean, maintainable mid sized applications. Knowing
how to structure code at module and method level, and knowing how to
make appropriate class hierachies (including alternatives like
composition and delegation).

And thanks for the effort you are putting into this!
