Actually, I'd say that CPAN *is* a Holy Cow...

As in, "Holy Cow! Look at all that code!"
Or "Holy Cow! I didn't think of doing it *that* way!"
Or "Holy Cow! I can actually talk to the person that wrote this!"

As many have pointed out (and I'm paraphrasing), CPAN isn't some faceless corporation where you are only a consumer of product... CPAN is *real people*.

And that's a good thing.

    It's people. CPAN is made out of people. They're making our code out of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for code. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them! CPAN is people!
