Why bother?  There are just a few functions that are ubiquitous and they've
not changed in a long time.  Seems easier to be self-contained lest be
pestered by those of certain a religion as to where the module file should
be installed.  If editing multiple files is the argument, the scripts may
as well be built by autoconf into a self-contained file from many.

Tex has done the latter on branch, yet to be merged.

If there is no reason for this I would like to propose moving to perl modules so that the code used in each perl script is less and changes can be made to one module and it would apply to all scripts that reference that module.
