Actually it was held back from the list due to size limits.  I sent it
through this morning.

This seems like the right split to me - I'm still a little nervous about
CPAN, but I think after people get used to it, it makes sense, and yum
install perl(CPAN) should get it for them.  I wonder if explicitly
providing something called 'cpan' would help - so 'yum install cpan'
would work as well.

Yes, that's really annoying - I wish there were a 'better way'.
