Option 2: Memoise __DATA__

Can you have the package read __DATA__ and fill a package variable, if the package variable isn't defined yet? Something like:

{ my %config; sub new { if (not %config) { %config = read_config_from(__DATA__); } # Now create the object... } }

I'm sure you could make this more flexible, reading from __DATA__ unless passed some other file or file handle.
