Functions or class methods?
Class methods just work normally.
Functoins are potentially methods (or vice versa), just as in normal perl.
No difference really from a "traditional" class.

MooseX::ClassAttribute. But the only reason to use it is laziness and
short sightedness in my opinion.

There's no way to tell them apart from normal methods so they are just there

That's certainly possible, but it's probably a much better idea to
have a separate .pm file and package for the exported routines.
I usually use Sub::Exporter.
For an example of how to mix the exports and the OO api in the same
.pm, see Devel::StringInfo for example
P.S. sorry for belated reply, I've been ignoring my email for the past week
