It's the and more thing I don't like about base.pm. If you just need base.pm for setting @ISA at compile time, it's a lot of baggage that you're schlepping along.

And on the other hand, base.pm is not doing enough: if you need a module's import method called, you still need to either use the module with the right parameters before calling base.pm, or you need to call the import yourself afterwards.
So yes, I don't like base.pm.
