>=90% of the work was your own

Has such a project ever been written, by anyone? Have you looked at the modules you're using? My Perl projects have all had more reused code written by others than original code written by me. Is this a bad thing? No, because that's not what I use Perl for. If I want to write an entire application from scratch, I'd choose a different language. Perl's power comes directly from third-party modules.
