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.
