cgi use custom lib as last recourseby leocharre (Priest)

leocharre has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm thinking of packaging a web interface to an application.
There are deps- Such as CGI::Session, for example. So something occurred to me- to potentially make it extra easy for everyday people to use- who might or might not have perl module deps system wide. But if they do- use that as a default.
I could include in the distro, a lib/depshere filesystem "branch" with the some module deps. But what if they already have the modules installed on the system?
I basically would want to look inside the ./ path as a last, not first recourse. Should I simply reverse @INC, or do something like a push @INC, $pathtoaltlib in a BEGIN block? The last seems to work.
Seems that if I don't use 'use lib..' at all- the cwd is scanned as a last place to look into.
