Unfortunately once you get outside the realm of Exporter you've probably
pretty well stepped away from the idea of "minimal Perl." 

I would guess that anything that doesn't come standard with Perl, you
shouldn't get into*.

*Except in a chapter on CPAN, of course.

I used to use one of the techniques in Damian's OO book
