Are you really trying to move 100+ methods within a single class?
If so that sounds utterly wrong. And moving from the instance side to the class side is even worse.
This smells like putting a single class around your old non-OO code.
If you don’t have REALLY good reasons to have such a number of methods in a class you should
consider to refactor the class into several classes.
This wouldn’t prevent you from having the problem to move methods around but would lessen the pain.
