Note that if you call your constructor in the typical OO fashion:

  my $obj = ClassName->new();

then the prototype will not apply.  From 'perldoc perlsub':

       Perl supports a very limited kind of compile-time argument
       checking using function prototyping.  
       Method calls are not influenced by prototypes either,
       because the function to be called is indeterminate at
       compile time, since the exact code called depends on

Have fun,
