But aren't these things that are best learnt without reference to any
particular language or simply through experience? Even if one was to
disagree with the first part then I think that many people would agree
that Perl might not be the language that one would choose to teach good
OO design skills in the first place. Of course teaching people  how they
might set about applying virtuous OO design practices to Perl is a
worthwhile aim ...
