    Does Perl need decorators to fix this kind of thing?

    I'm not really clear on this in that I've never actually programmed in a language that supports decorators. Well, I've done Scheme and I'm assured that there is nothing that you cannot do in Scheme, but I've never done it.

    I'm sure that Perl 6 has decorators as I'm as sure it has almost everything imaginable. I hear it has Traits and Roles [perl.org] and a lot of other things I've never even thought of. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't really have a stable existence that encourages me to use it for real-world solutions, but that's a small thing when compared to all these great features.
