in reply to Is CPAN usable now?

Re-indexing CPAN would be a waste of time, I think. If I'm looking for a module to perform a certain function, I'll just type perl module function keywords into Google to find any relevant module names, then go to CPAN to find the modules. Google does its bit very well, so why reinvent the wheel? (Besides, sometimes the module Google finds for me isn't even on CPAN.)
