Which is why perlbrew essentially does this automatically. You have a 
library hierarchy for each perl version, so just cut local::lib out of 
the equation and use that. Alternatively, you could just write a wrapper 
script to switch it and that would not only switch it in perlbrew but 
also change the environment variables for local::lib.
