Sure, but in my case I am using a perl module that was "out there" and
not part of CPAN, it reads DICOM headers in medical imaging data and
now that it has no active maintainer there is no canonical site to get
it. :(

Sure, in this case though the module is more perl script only.

Aye, and all the various variable renaming's that might go along with it. <sigh>
