Looks like he managed to get it out in 25 at some point (with the help

What I love about perl's oo is that we really don't need all of the 
formalisms that appear in other languages.  What I hate about it is 
that I don't understand the jargon that appears when people start 
talking about languages with less casual OO constructs.

"A trait is essentially a group of pure methods that serves as a 
building block for classes and is a primitive unit of code reuse."

So, can you spell that in Perl?  It sounds suspiciously like it's 
nothing more than a module that allows you to import some methods into 
your namespace.  Or is that a mixin?
