Addition to @INC

Addition to @INC
Message ID:
How difficult would it be to add the path of the current working directory
of the script itself into INC? I'm finding myself constantly doing the following

sub _dir 
    { my $file = `which $0`; my ($dir) = ($file =~ m"(.*/)"); return($dir); }
BEGIN { push (@INC, _dir($0)); }

in my scripts to keep my scripts and modules in the same place. And I would say
that there is a precedent, that '.' is already @INC, which is considerably less
secure than this proposal.
