having each application install its own version of common libraries in its own location sounds to me like a maintenance nightmare.
Having to worry that some of the applications you have installed will break whenever you upgrade any module is also a maintenance nightmare. In the end, you should be able choose which kind of nightmare you prefer, ;-) which may depend on your situation. A user who just wants to install one blog application is not in the same situation as a webmaster maintaining several applications.

A good compromise could be to provide both options: a standard CPAN package that lets you install the dependencies separately wherever you want, and a "user-friendly" bundle that you can just unwrap and works out of the box.

    [Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
    [ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
    [Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
    [ambrus]: The pillars are there because this is in the 6th floor of building R of BME, which is an attic that was built in after the original building, which is also why the elevator doesn't go that high and the windows are tiny.
    [Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
    [ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
    [ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
    [Corion]: That's why I like HTML - it makes it relatively easy to resize stuff. Resizing with Powerpoint is much harder, or at least, I remember it being that way
    [ambrus]: (a) good sans serif fonts optimized for slides in a projector with coverage of the symbols needed for mathematical formulas in a sans serif font matching the text font well, and
    [ambrus]: (b) a good presentation system that lets the presenter quickly interactively edit the slides live during a presentation, to combine the advantages of blackboard and overhead slide styles in modern tech
