I'm not familiar with how Perl libraries work -- how would they solve
this problem?  If you're talking about having to install the library
into some location outside the kernel tree, that seems contrary to the
desire to have a lightweight tool that can be copied around.  If not,
how would it be any better than depending on a callable script?
