Well, at least your perl modules are :-) They can now live
anywere above $FindBin::Bin -- via dir's or symlinks -- and
you can find them all with a single "use FindBin::libs".

It also slices, dices, etc.


One nice use of this is getting current modules into a
sandbox for regression testing, another is simply having
your modules available via a common symlink in folks'
sandboxes. Current project uses it for finding metadata
files via the export option.
