Discussion on: Bringing Modern OO To Perl

Since this was posted, we've had a lot of discussion around CONSTRUCT and have since realized that as a phaser, it actually doesn't work since it needs to return a value. So we dropped it entirely. Now, we just use alternate constructors if we need to munge the arguments, or do validation in the ADJUST phaser.

Good, the implementation of CONSTRUCT as proposted on the current Wiki page bothered me a great deal. I agree that dropping it was a good choice. Can you point me to where these discussions are going on? I'd love to follow along and give my input where warranted.

Largely they're on irc.perl.org on the #cor channel. Mostly it's pretty quiet right now because we've nailed down much of the behavior and the push to get the next version of Perl out the door is taking priority.
