in reply to Modules that significantly contribute to {Impatience,Hubris}

"Impatience" can probably be addressed by several modules. I sometimes use Win::OLE or Win32::CtrlGUI to automate Windows actions, even when it would be more Lazy (in the long run) to do them manually, if it will make things run faster when I need them.

For me, "Hubris" is satisfied by a nice platform-independent graphical interface. I use Tk.
