[Pdx-pm] semiautomatic module downloader

One of the "pleasures" of running many Perl applications and modules
are the repeated trips to CPAN to acquire the needed dependencies. 

Is there some method that simplifies the process?  I was thinking 
a scanner that looks at the Perl app at either download or runtime,
finds the modules that aren't already downloaded, and generates a
script that can be run afterwards that interactively downloads the
new modules from CPAN.  

Or is heading for CPAN one of life's joys for most, and I am foolishly
demonstrating my lack of enlightenment?
