Zecho has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Kind of an odd thought... Are there any reasons to be concerned with the number of perl modules I have installed at any given time? I remember back when I used Windows, if you loaded too many fonts it'd cause serious problems (I'm sure this has been fixed). Not that I'm comparing modules to fonts, but are there any concerns as far as loading/parsing speed if there are a ton of modules installed? Or anything else I should be aware of?
