This has taken valuable time out of my Civilisation 5 playing tonight,
but I've updated Flickr::API2 with some helper methods and pushed them
to the github repo now.
I'll just have to conquer the world tomorrow instead. :)

The API with helper methods looks like this:

my $f = Flickr::API2->new({ ... });

$f->test->echo(foo => 'bar');

my @pics = $f->photos->search(
    tags => 'kitten',
    per_page => 10,
foreach my $pic (@pics) {
    say "Title: " . $pic->title;

Not complete yet mind, but what do you think of stuff so far?


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
