APM: Just need structs

Not sure if this is what you want... but it looks like a C struct  
other than the {}.  Unless you are tricky then direct access is  
always there even with subs for access each variable.  If you do not  
care to have them (eg.  name() for setting and getting the name var  
below) then just hit it directly.

If the 3 structs you need all have the same 2 fields then just do  
"new" on that object... Other-wise create 3 "packages".

BTW you can also make it so new() will take arguments and set the  
values of the variables at initialization...

	$p = new Person;
	$p->{name} = "Henry";
	print "$p->{name}\n";

	package Person;

	sub new {
		my $self = {};
		$self->{name} = undef;
		$self->{age}  = 0;
		$self->{favorite_foods} = [];
		return $self;
