Now be gentle.

At least one place where this a real pain is in a shared webserver 
environment, where
you can't modify the binary, you can't easily change the ENV, and you 
can't alter
the command line invocation.  So you're down to changing the source 
On every script.  Over and over.  It's a nuisance, if nothing else.

I usually have a .pm file that I reference with a use
statement to setup a bunch of definitions and stuff.
But it would surely be nice to have a default place in ~/ or ./ that 
perl would look in.
