I'm asking sincerely, I'm not looking to criticize, or start a religious war. I'm curious on a technical level why the process takes so long, compared to say, Python modules. My typical experience is it takes seconds to install most Python modules and their dependencies, where Perl usually takes minutes, and will come with dozens of dependencies. This has been my observation as someone who develops Perl and Python on my local machines, both at work and home, however the same holds true when building docker images remotely, so it's not like Perl is just slow on "my machine".
I hate to say it, but the only other module system that I'm familiar with, that takes as-long or longer to build out modules is npm.
