in reply to Why isn't ->can() curried?

The current implementation allows you to do totally lame-brained things . . .

Those things things are allowed anyway. Remember: Perl allows you to do anything you want. There is no such thing as truly private data in Perl the same way it is in Java (for example). Perl's way of doing private data is to make it inconvieant to access with a little comment that says "anybody who uses this deserves what they get" :)

    But since this isn't about private data... Anyhow I've got no problem with people who can go grab or alter the object in the method. I just think the object should be there. Right now it's not. This is a completely different concern.
