However, an upgrade at some point is inevitable. The next Ubuntu server won't come with 5.8

A separate install of a latest perl for one application allows you to do get things done at your own pace rather than when you upgrade the server. You can test your other applications one a time and be ready for the Ubuntu upgrade when it occurs.
