People who are really upset about their variable privacy usually use
closures that way (yes, inside out objects use closures as methods - the
hash keys are lexicals at the file scope level). But FYI, this can be
also overridden. See http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=315186,
which is pretty scary, I must admit.

And then there's always pseudohashes, right?


Good news everybody, starting from Perl 5.9.0, pseudohashes, the ones
used in the fields.pm pseudo-pragma, have been replaced with
Hash::Util's locking mechanism.

I know this because i recently patched base.pm/fields.pm to play nicer
with them old pseudohashes, when a subclasses of some fielded class does
not introduce anything new.

All you guys who behaved well should have quicker code by 5.10. =)
