It's pretty trivial to build and load perl modules somewhere other than
the vendor perl lib directories where they might risk breaking the
system. The only real reason you have to stay away from dependencies in
a corporate environment is when it's enforced legally, otherwise, anyone
with a gnu toolchain and a clue can build perl modules without remotely
risking breaking the system.
