Thanks! I actually found those this past weekend, and while I don't think they quite fit here, they are *quite* handy! In a fit of Laziness, Impatience and Hubris I began crafting my own system-path-resolver-thingie and it's using File::ShareDir, along with File::HomeDir, et. al.

I do plan on posting some of my notes here just as soon as I've finished figuring out which ones make me look smart and which ones betray my true level of ignorance. :)
OK, a link to the notes has been posted in the update section of the OP!
