Although I'm delighted to see most Perlies accept Moose as the "normal"
way to do OO, not all scripts have enough complexity to justify OO (or
even functions, in some cases :-).

My take is that there are a number of tools for encapsulation.  They
have benefits and costs, so the trick is to balance the two and use
the appropriate tools for the project at hand.

So, don't create large programs without using the appropriate tools,
but don't require small programs to use unnecessary tools, either.
