If you would, please pick a different language (say, REBOL or Lisp ;) )
for your example. I (and many others) regularly write *much* more than
'some isolated (Perl) scripts to do some transformation here and there' on
a regular basis. I've personally written hundreds of thousands of lines of
mostly object oriented Perl in the last three years.
... with proper design, the features come cheaply. This
approach is arduous, but continues to succeed.
