Well, to me, "Modules" was this mystical perl concept that only guru's 
wrote. It felt like a very advanced topic and that didn't change until I 
learned about them as a side-effect of trying to learn about DBus. So by 
"intermittent", I mean to help people who may be familiar with perl get 
a feeling for something they may otherwise feel is outside their reach.

The "short" and "long" version sounds like a good thing, too. 
Personally, I'd love to hear a talk on writing testable code... 
Something I am ashamed to say I know little about.
