Given that I am currently working in a production environment where versioning control is an on-going concern, the newly-released only module from Brian Ingerson has been added to "to watch" list.

This module allows for the installation of multiple versions of modules (without the establishment of entirely separate module installation trees) with the ability to load specific versions at run-time - This has the potential to be a real boon in this current production environment where issues with versioning control has resulted in the stagnation of application binaries and library modules for fear of disrupting legacy code.

Up until this point, I have not been able to develop a firm decision as to the manner by which such legacy dependencies could be fulfilled while permitting the evolution of development and development environment - One possibility which I had considered was the use of PAR to build self-contained packages of software. The problem with this approach however came down to the additional burden associated with the maintenance and deployment of such application packages.

While only doesn't solve my problem entirely, it does provide a very useful installation and versioning mechanism which may form part of my solution - A module to watch ...
