What stops your company from adopting CPAN modules as its "own"? I mean it is open source after all and not some proprietary black box libraries. Get modules you need into your CVS, do their code review, if you want write tests with 100% coverage if modules don't have them. It still will be more time efficient then doing everything from scratch.
