LOL, at a client's place, I was trying to customize the
Perl-written Interchange web store software (don't ever use it, it's
an atrocity) on circa 2003 Red Hat, and had to use CPAN for a new
capability. That CPAN download broke the client's Vim and some other
softwares. It took me 2 hours to undo the damage.

That was the beginning of the end of my relationship with Perl.
