Official Mirror attempts to load Perl modules from a list, stopping at the first
successful load and failing only if no alternative was found.
Often there are several possible providers of some functionality your program
needs, but you don't know which is available at the run site. For example,
one of the modules may be implemented with XS, or not in the core Perl

be as simple as:
use Best qw/YAML::Syck YAML/;
