You don't really need arguments so much as you need negotiation, people
management and (ugh) political skills, I think.  Your task is to overcome
his prejudices, and you aren't going to do that with arguments, no matter

IMO the first thing you ought to do is dig in, really listen, and find
out what his issue is with module distribution.

Listening well is your most powerful asset.  Overcome your own prejudices
first, and his may follow :)
