Yes Andrew, I agree. I prefer to use a package's bits and bobs in the 
way that the writer of the package intended just in case I miss the 
subleties of the reasons why he did it that way (which may be 
idiosyncratic of course) and then when I know enough about the package, 
I can decide to do things another way if I want.

Must look at Dancer.
