There's always a chance, although CPAN packages are generally getting better
about playing along with package systems But the real problem with this
idea is that it means something has to monitor CPAN to detect and convert
new packages — and with the size of and amount of sheer cruft on CPAN,
that's incredibly wasteful. Better to add packages on demand.
