I agree.  I used those very same pages.  I just picked up Moose recently,
and it wasn't hard.

One thing I have yet to find is a good Moose singleton module.
has been failing, complaining that new has already been called (today,
That sort of defeats the purpose of a singleton. ;)

Also, I'm a bit peeved that protected and private methods aren't part
of the base
system.  But practically it's not really an issue to have everything
rw publicly.
After all, Perl programmers have been doing it for years. :P
