reveal a mind torn between common sense and a philosophy taken to the extreme
Then I think you misunderstand what I was saying. Currently there is a growing complexity that can be confusing to those not in tune with how the grand scheme of things work. I would like to see more order brought to that complexity. I'm saying we should acknowledge those different distribution formats more clearly (whether by extension, repository or some other method), and better define the install method(s) appropriate to them.

Not knowing what's what at a glance, and having to look things up, or download and check them by hand, is not going to do CPAN or any other repository, any favours.
