Besides the fact that he used 212 diferent modules (I wonder what kind of things does his blog do behind the curtains...), the point of the post is that the Perl community has a real libraries culture: when someone solves a task, he/she puts the solution inside a module and usually documents it. This is a great thing, because it encourages code reuse more than any other programming technique (e.g. OO programming) and it is something that the Lisp community has always missed, in particular the documentation part. If the Arc community could learn that important lesson from Perl, that would be a huge leap forward for the Lisp world.
