in reply to RFC: auditing cpan installs

I think a better method of doing what you want would be to download the module, untar, then run:
$ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test
If that works without error you can make install as root.

    Of course, this means you'd need to manually resolve dependencies, while CPAN will do that for you. But this is the best way I know to audit exactly what's happening at each step.
