You mentioned in the update about
CPAN-Search-Lite - there's a script in that
csl_soap, which can be used to get information on
CPAN modules, distributions, and authors from a remote
SOAP server (it just requires
Getopt-Long, not the full CPAN-Search-Lite
package). To see it work, near the top
of the script, set
my $soap_uri =
my $soap_proxy =
and then you can use it as
C:\Perl\bin>csl_soap --dist Catalyst-Plugin-Pluggable
Abstract: Plugin for Pluggable Catalyst applications
CPAN author: SRI
CPAN file: Catalyst-Plugin-Pluggable-0.04.tar.gz

This doesn't do wildcard searches - it's just there as
a proof-of-concept - but could readily be adapted to
do so if there was interest.
