I guess must be being thick here, but...
If you do not use use_ok, then what symbols are defined in or by the module prior to the compilation error is irrelevant, because the script that uses that module will be aborted:
So, if all you are going to do if the use_ok fails, is exit, you've gone to a lot of trouble for nothing.
And along the way you've thrown away all that nice information telling you what went wrong and where.
Any way I look at that, it is a net loss. And a major one that requires me to write another script or one-liner and run it in order to retrieve that information.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
