In fact there is a few share of users using shared servers. But in the 
other hand, there are a lot of users installing locally a Perl version 
for each one of their project, knowing this way updating a module for 
one of their projects will not ruin other projects running on the same 
machine.

Therefore, restringing this magic to system-wide modules doesn't seem 
fair, nor really useful.

iOS is single user AFAIK. Android at the moment is single user as well 
(with some new tries for multi-user). So not a big example.

My 2 cents,
