in reply to Out-of-the box Perl version - lowest common denominator

In a *nix environment does a system Perl matter for your purposes? Wouldn't it be better to simply supply or suggest a recommended system independent Perl context? On Windows it doesn't matter so much as there isn't a system Perl. So a PerlBrew mediated environment seems like a good option.

    Perhaps. If you have the luxury of knowing that all your potential users have both the knowledge and the motivation to build their own Perl. Personally, I (and I presume the OP) am not prepared to assume this to be the case, so I write my code on the assumption that it will be run using the system Perl, whatever version that might be.
