I think this is too much work for a server you don't have root access to.

I do not agree with that. Even when I have root access, I try to keep Perl projects self-contained, with all their dependencies locally (ideally on a per-project basis). If you start messing with site-perl, you will run into problems when you want different versions of the same module. It also makes it easier to revert back to a clean Perl install.

    True enough, but that doesn't mean root (sysadmin) shouldn't install it. I think most sysadmins would be rather happy to get requests to install things per project rather than potentially breaking older commitments.
