[sf-perl] javadoc for perl?

Is it hopeless?
I used to do a fair amount of java programming, and one of the things
I miss, when working on OO perl code, is javadoc (especially working
on someone else's OO perl!).
I don't know why, but pod format seems very unnatural to me for
documenting OO perl. It reminds me more of nroff. I prefer having
the doc more tightly coupled with methods/packages/functions.
I've looked at some of the output from
<http://search.cpan.org/~markov/OODoc-2.00/lib/OODoc.pod>OODoc and it
seems to be headed in the right direction, but is not nearly as nice
is some example output.
Thoughts? Generate psuedo java code from OO perl and run it through
javadoc maybe? Probably the other way (generate perl OO from java
class stubs with doc) would be easier, but I don't think it is
sellable to a perl development team.
