I can relate to the OP. My employer is actually afraid of Perl for "security reasons" and generally won't install any modules. Silly, given that Perl's one of the best tools out there in terms of security. Not all the neanderthals are dead...

I could almost understand that if modules required root access and a sysadmin to install (if only because I'm a sysadmin, and I don't want to be bothered for stuff like that), but with things like local::lib and even just running cpan as a non-privileged user, it's hard to justify or make sense of it.
