Then why did you write (and use?) Class::Prototyped for Perl <g>?

An explanation for the rest of you on the list:

Toby is the author of a Self-like object model for Perl. This is a module 
that's available on CPAN and lets you combine regular old Perl 5 (either 
without objects, or using Perl's simple object model) with slot-based 

Since he may be the only user of this module, I should let him explain how it 
works in practice.

In the interests of full disclosure, I have to say that I helped writing 
Class::Prototyped, but I didn't inhale. And I quit working with Perl a long 
time ago.
