Not here.

The Pinto project was my first deep-dive into Moose.  Now I won't do anything without it.  Here's why:

Economy:  Moose greatly reduces the amount of code I have to write and test.  Less code means fewer bugs.  And the remaining bugs that I do create are a lot easier to spot when the aren't swimming in a sea of getters/setters and other loosely related methods.

Organization: Roles, type definitions, and meta extensions each give me convenient "compartments" for my code.  Each compartment is isolated, reusable, and testable.  I find this much faster to write and easier to use than piling everything into traditional classes.

Community: The MooseX namespace has a ton of wonderful extensions.  The've solved problems for me that I didn't even know I had.
