A useful, easily installable library bundle does not have to be in the
core distribution.

Debian already has its own split between perl and perl-modules. This is
a great scheme that allows Debian to use Perl in the base system,
without requiring the loads of unused modules that usually come with it.
If you need those modules, though, you can easily install them.

It would be great if Perl had this by default, because it would make it
easier for vendors to choose to use Perl in their base system. It would
also make Perl a more attractive choice for embedded systems.
