Fair enough.
I'll write and submit a tip for the blfs modules with respect to what
other functionality they can have if you build other modules (or
libraries) first.

As far as maintaining perl modules - I can definitely see your point.
It's not uncommon for perl modules to suddenly become part of the next
release of perl (and thus be satisfied by having the current perl) etc.
