You don't have to be in a corporate environment for that to be a pain in
the arse. On my own machines I don't really want to run the risk that
one of those 70+ dependencies will break something else, nor do I
particularly relish having a seperate build of perl with its own @INC
sandbox for every application.
Something with fewer dependencies makes it easier to either verify them
before-hand, or figure out what screwed up and fix it.

I use ttytter, which has pleasingly few dependencies. In fact IIRC I
didn't need to install any at all.
