in thread OO systems and Perl 5 (Was: Recap: Future of Perl 5)

You can mimic most of the syntactic sugar of Python, though I'd rather try copying Ruby.

I only discussed Python OO because someone mentioned that Larry said he stole Python's OO system (and then repented).

When I was doing my searching, among the OO systems I found, Smalltalk was closest to Perl 5's OO system.

(As for Ruby, maybe Python 3 stole Ruby's OO system.)
