it was mean as a light hearted nudge and wink that OOP would not even let that problem occur.
OOP would not solve the problem, just "ease it up" a bit. Instead of having thousands of procedures you'd still have hundreds of classes.
Modules on the otherhand would solve this...hold on, wasn't that a feature request Fred said they'd think about a way to implement it?
Wait, this was more than six years ago.
Looking at PB's history there used to be a new release once every few months, now we're lucky if we even get a bug fix each year let alone a request implemented!!!
True, PB's development has been slowed down drastically but that's not an issue for me. We get free updates for a life time (never saw this in any other software).
So the updates come when they come, nothing is going to change that.
On the other hand I also have to say that I moved away from using PB on a daily basis long time ago,
so I don't really care when new updates are coming out, or if they are coming out at all. Although I like checking them out every once in a while.
I don't know how much you use or depend on PB, but the time might have come for you too to move on...
