in reply to How to restore @INC

i think the everyone should like to see the tweak-ish config on this, just like we have at apache's Why not? Even in mod_perl i can vary @INC, in FCGI::ProcManager too. But not in the 'plain' perl.
Yes, this is achievable by sources patch, but mission is possible. And, this may be the faster problem solution when the existing sysadmin setup is very custom. At least on FreeBSD i have choice on threads, GDBM, etc.
