tested CPAN last night

If you want to test CPAN works as advertised, install MojoMojo. I did it last night, and it worked, even though there are hundreds (or so it seems :) ) dependencies. I installed it in my home, so this evening I'll delete the ~/perl5 directory and start again, this time taking notes: once a few of those dependencies, some from CPAN and some *-dev packages, are installed, the whole "cpan MojoMojo" should work nicely, and you'll have only to watch from time to time for prompts from tests.
