So does yum, and CPAN itself for that matter, but that isn't really what
I was raising. If I use cpan to install Perl::MyPackage::MyModule it
doesn't show up when I do 'rpm -qa'. I can almost always say 'yum
install perl-MyPackage-MyModule' though with my repository collection.
Perhaps my main complaint is that the CPAN divisions are just too fine
grained. Disk space is way cheaper than my time, and I'd rather get
everything I need in one go.
