in reply to Bullish on Moose, how about you?
Yes, I've tried Moose and abandoned it. While I understand that its declarative syntax is quite popular, I don't feel that it really adds anything beyond overhead and absurdly long stack traces. I like traditional Perl OO, warts and all, but I'm also aware that I seem to be in a distinct minority. Like you, most people talking about their discovery of Moose absolutely love it, so you're definitely in good company, but there are a few of us heretics around, too.
