Another simple option is to pack the string into UUE. As with some of the other answers, this provides extremely limited security (bordering on none at all), it merely obscures the text. It doesn't seem to add too much length of the messages I tested. Example:

my $msg = pack "u", "Secret message that is not so secret"; print "Obscured: $msg"; print "Plain: ", unpack("u", $msg), "\n";

[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: I am not that far ahead of you. (I wrote a simple bundle module, that just installs a set of other modules, so effectively no CPAN experience either.)
[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: By the way, I did look up another module (Tk), to see how it referred to other modules, and it used the L<module_name> POD linking, whereas the one I ran into today had hard-coded l<text|url> links.
