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.
