in thread 'do' command is dead? Surely not?

Maybe not but some other (optional) module that was not present in the original system could still be loaded from /tmp.

    the program would have to be trying to load said module first ... its expecting it to exist

        If the original author used Module::Pluggable, but did not remove '.' from @INC, then the original author intended to load unspecified modules on purpose from '.'

        There is no contradiction

      Yes, the program does expect the module to exist. But that expectation can be incorrect.

      I don't know about you, but I frequently get Perl code (usually things written by coworkers...) which doesn't properly document its dependencies, resulting in attempts to load modules which aren't installed on the machine.
