in reply to Top Seven (Bad) Reasons Not To Use Modules

I am not allowed to install modules sitewide

This can be valid in some environments. One of my friends works at a huge mega conglomerate spanning countries and continents. Frequently, he uses perl to make tape drives do things all over the world. The scripts must be deployed on literally thousands of machines and installing modules is a really big deal -- usually involving a committee and multiple sysadmins at each physical location. He tends to avoid them at all costs and I can't say I blame him.

Is there a solution for that? I really don't think there is.
