|Keep It Simple, Stupid
If you have had just one bug report for any of the modules, then you can claim (with justification) that your code is getting free external testing and that that is to the direct benefit of the company. If you have had a bug report with a suggested solution, and maybe even supporting unit test code, then you have a clearly winning argument.
Some of the module code I've released to CPAN has been developed on company time and the company is happy for me to do that. It was a real bonus when the first bug report come in and it fixed a potential issue in production code!
