in thread The Corinna RFC for getting modern OO into the Perl core is taking shape

I am neutral to Corinna (on the principle of "let all flowers blossom" and respecting others creative effort).

I think that the following statement is simplistic:

If we later find this too restrictive, we can allow multiple inheritance. However, if we start with multiple inheritance and discover we don't need or want multiple inheritance, we would break existing code by taking it away.

It sounds (EDIT: adding MI) simple but it is not, not only technically but also in terms of managing users who adopted it already. Neither option (EDIT: later adding or removing MI) is, actually. (Personally I think it would be way too complex to have MI: semantics, rules of inheritance and implementation on ancient (right?) Perl interpreter internals. I have never used it with C++ and never missed it with Java. But my point is not about MI, EDIT: i.e. let's not have a discussion if MI is needed right now and here, on this subthread)

bw (and good luck with Corinna), bliako
