    One idea - OO makes it easier to cope with state - and this means people write more state-full apis where pure procedural languages would produce more stateless (functional) apis. And state is always more difficult to reason about.

    I don't want to single anything out - but what comes to mind is a hypothetical encoding API - that used to be of the form: my $encoded = encode( $from, $to, $what ); And then it became more OO with: my $encoding = Some::EncodingLib::new( $from, $to ); my $encoded = $encoding( $what );
