FWIW is a single-file module, so it could be even slurped into the
cgi script, (so 'fatpacker' even not needed) or just copied into current dir 
and used from there.

but - more to the point - IMO number of obsoleted modules should be 
stripped from the core, not only CGI, nowadays these mostly are - DB 
modules such as SDBM_File AnyDBM_File etc
