Plus, don't you install each distribution only once in a while?
Define "once in a while". I install CPAN modules
less often than I use them, but I don't very often
go a week without installing some modules off of CPAN
onto one or more of the various computers that I use
or administer at home or at work. Long install times
are annoying, annoying enough that I have developed
this little habbit of doing screen -R CPAN,
starting the install, detaching, and doing something
else for a while. But I can't continue to work on
whatever I was doing until the install finishes. I
wish more of the modules on CPAN were pure Perl so
they wouldn't take so long to install. It is my
sincere hope that in Perl6 XS will be unnecessary
and heavily deprecated.
