What if we had no walls at all?

Incidentally, it struck me that my use of CGI::Ajax referred to in my previous post is an example of where Perl's loose object-orientation works with the programmer, not against it. I'm sure some anal-retentive, secretive paranoid that writes in Java or C++ would have made most of those methods private, and thus would have forced a major re-engineering of my code to fit in with their own personal way of doing things. Perl naturally tends toward letting you see all the methods, not just those publically declared, but to me this is a general argument for letting people have a bit more control of your object than you think is good for it.
