If you wrapped the code you posted in a function and used it, you would be the author.
then i would make my code bigger (and hence harder to maintain) without reason. the maintainer would need to read the code of my function, while he might be familiar with wide-spread library already. i do not like to add to this world's entropy. :-)
Or worse those same attributes of the latest maintainer, who may decide to take the module in a completely different direction. Something that has happened to me at least 4 times in the last 5 years.
Sounds quite sad. Why have such large amount of libs if you are afraid to use them? Maybe you're right and I will change my mind when I use perl for more time.
