[Melbourne-pm] Class::Std vs Object::InsideOut

Hey Scott,

I myself haven't used both of these extensively, but here are some points
made from a perl developer on the perl devel list here at work, who prefers

- thread safety
- accessor naming
- storing the ID of the scalar in the scalar (performance savings)
- couple of tricky things though, you can inherit from non-InsideOut
cclasses, but that's done by storing a reference to the parent object(s),
which means you can't inherit from method-only ( i.e. mix-in) classes.  Easy
to work around, just suprising.

Hope that helps a little..
