So what ? 

Using Perl as an OO language still beats other "true" OO languages for
practical use. Python ? I have to waste time writing god knows how much
boilerplate code for the object instantiation/getters/setters/etc. With
Perl its all generated for me by Class::MethodMaker

C++ is just OO bolted onto C as an afterthought. Is C++ any less OO than
Java ? Until recently Java was a worse OO language than C++ in so much
as it lacked any support for generics. Designing from the ground up does
not automatically make something good / better than something which
evolved before hand.
