That's precisely the problem of these monolithic batteries included  
things, what gets in, what doesn't, what is redundant with other  
packages, what are my exact needs, what if suddenly a developer offers  
a better module.

Again, creating a developer-oriented module distribution/installation  
mechanism would allow to easily get all these modules separately and  
cherry-pick them. With all due respect for the work done I think the  
monolithic batteries included thing is solving the wrong problem --  
perl has no batteries included library, the batteries are cpan.
