a interesting implication of "subroutine with fully-qualified package 
name" versus "method name lookup starting in package of supplied 
object" is that you can inherit handlers when using an object.  
(warning, untested -- just going be reading the code.)

Indeed, I have found the ability to inherit handlers to be quite useful.
But having full access to application state via $self is the real win.
I had my own little helper routine to traverse the GladeXML widget tree
and hook up handlers as object method calls.  I found it so useful I
thought I'd contribute it as a patch to  When Il ooked into
it, I found it was already there as undocumented behaviour - hence the
doc patch.
