Financial institutions. Interesting environment. They say they are risk-averse, but what they really are is blame-averse. They want everything change-managed, version controlled, box-ticked, signed off, audited, and what have you. I am the drokking sysadmin on these boxes, and I have to ask for root. It's not that you couldn't work around it. I have on occasion added to my projects the .pms of CPAN modules I really could not be bothered to rewrite, skirting the definition of "installed".

Administrative fascist is a little too aggressive for my taste. But thank you for that link, I could use the giggles. LibXML is just an example. Obstacle course maybe?

Oh well... let's see if there is something fun in the ticket queue.
