I think the "random word" is clever. I was also going to suggest something like:

perl -e 'require Some::Module;'

(golf, anyone?) for checking for the existence of some module, but then I realized that the intent of yours was probably to produce a "boolean" value, which could be more useful to something like an install script than mine, which will either produce nothing or some text.
