I'm confused - what benefit would this have? Just set up your @INC using use lib and you're fine ... right?

    No, the hook could dynamically download and install locally, or copy from a network location, the files. It could also be used for things like verifying signatures, or reporting which modules and versions were actually used (before shipping).

    Instead of die'ing when a use fails, it could automatically grab it from CPAN. Transparant use of distributed scripts!


      Ok. Now, my question then becomes why this needs to be a Perl hook and not just a module? Damian Conway is writing the craziest modules .....
        The hook allows such modules to be written.
