On top of that, I maintain 25 servers---to have to deal with perlbrew on

Yes, I do occasionally have to build my own packages for things, but
dh-make-perl makes doing that falling-down easy, uscan makes it easy to
see when upgrades have come out, git-buildpackage makes tracking all of
it simplicity in itself...
