CPAN is great, but it suffers from Perl philosophy: "There's more than one way to do it" . Perl module authors not only re-invent the wheel: they argue stridently for the use of sleds, rollers, travois, octagonal wheels, and argue against development of roads, because roads aren't compatible with a travois, and "what about all those people who don't like wheels?"

CPAN is stuffed with great, good, bad, and terrible code all mixed up together; there's no consistent standards for versioning, there's no consistent standards for coding; like Perl, there's little, if any, consistent standards.

If you have to review all the code you're about to use manually just to know if it is robust enough to suit your purposes, you gain little, if any benefit, over simply writing the code yourself.
