tangentially related to your question...

i do tools for (mostly) the release engineering group at work.  my
company is a java shop, so not too many of us use perl.  rather than
getting sysadmins to install new modules when i need one, i decided a
while back to keep all of our tools / libraries / etc in a single tree
on our nas (which is mounted to all the machines which matter).  so
all folks have to do to use our tools is to mount that nas partition.

home grown modules go under </nas/reg/lib/perl5/>.  cpan modules that
i need go there, too.  (reg is an acronym which stands for release
engineering group.)  so any programs that want to use these modules
include the use statement:

  use lib '/nas/reg/lib/perl';

(/nas/reg/lib/perl is a symlink to /nas/reg/lib/perl5)

what i like is that i can maintain the contents in / updates to our
nas partition.

Live in a world of your own, but always welcome visitors.
