That would be an idea... I'm still of two minds about this, as the modules are simply convenience modules that automate the download and build of modules that rely on third party source code.

The idea is mostly that I have these modules in my Bundle::Corion so an upgrade to a new Perl version becomes less painfull for me. An installation from CPAN becomes thus unlikely for me, as these modules are already modules in my "default" installation. But for other people, this could be an alternative to the PPM route when the PPM is not yet available...
