Storable has been part of perl5 core for quite some time (perl
5.7-ish, looks like) While I suppose it's possible to need a newer
version than what comes with your perl, it's probably "better" (and
almost certainly easier) to just require a newer version of perl5
rather than monkey around with just the module.
