    [usemodperl]: so... how do we get modules via HTTP from metacpan?
    [marto]: configure whatever client you use to use a repositry you like?
    [Corion]: usemodperl: Why would you want HTTP there? If you want/need to use wget without SSL libraries, set www.cpan.org (or whatever) as your uplink?
    [marto]: I suspect more trolling...
    [usemodperl]: Because the audience for my apps have old, locked down versions of perl that can't install modules or update perl and now all that is horribly broken without HTTP. Of course I can go outside Perl anytime but that impacts portability
    [usemodperl]: I can find cpan mirrors on http but not with plain files, only tar.gz, does something like meta exist on http?
