in reply to Upgrading CPAN - Yes We Can

If you're collecting features you'd want, could you add alternate (disjunctive) module dependencies, where a module can depend on different combinations of other modules (and module versions)? The current dependency system is a bit restrictive, apt and other package managers have had disjunctions for ages. Also, maybe there could be recommended and suggested dependencies, not just required ones.
