in thread require() on the fly

In fact since (and will only hold subroutine definitions, it won't be a package (no package This; at the beginning)... So I don't think I'll even need to use import or @EXPORT...

It's really meant to be a convenient (and efficient) way to parse only the necessary subroutine code in order to speed up the script a bit. My question was more like: "Is it really worth it?"

    require reads and does preliminary parsing on the file. Saving one on a larger file will certainly save you time though probably not much if you're just loading a few functions. If you want to work on encapsualtion and efficiency, a package setup would work well. "Is it really worth it?" Probably not. But definitely give CGI::Lite a whorl.
