  • Apart from said deref syntax...

    * I have to worry about circular references? WTF! It's not like a decent garbage collection system is exactly cutting edge.
    * Having to write use strict/warnings/-T in every damn file
    * Source filters, and the deluded folk who think they are as good as Lisp macros
    * SUPER being related to the package the method was compiled into. Like that makes sense.
    * Depth-first method resolution by default
    * The evil mushing together of namespaces and classes
    * Packaging up a whole bunch of stuff for deployment by non-Perl gurus is just too damn hard
    * Having core perl functions that we can't override because the prototype system won't support them
    * Having to shift $self everywhere
    * Meta classes? What are they then...

    Off the top of my head...

    • * Packaging up a whole bunch of stuff for deployment by non-Perl gurus is just too damn hard
