in thread CPAN Shell, Bundles and downloading specific versions

Ah:

The reason is there is no way to reliably correlate module version numbers with distributions.

That makes sense, but that give me an idea, if, instead of a module listed as one of the lines in the CONTENTS part of a bundle, you can just put the path to the file itself you

need, ie:

id/G/GD/GDR/HTML-FromText-1.005.tar.gz

It seems that the CPAN shell gives back the warning:

The Bundle Bundle::Foo contains explicitly a file id/G/GD/GDR/HTML-FromText-1.005.tar.gz.

But, it does seem to work!
