I don't think so.
CPAN is Perl's killer application, and no other language I know of has
anything really comparable to it. Yes, I'm aware CPAN has warts, but
what other language even *has* a "C*AN" that is the standard source of
reusable code? "Is the" (existence and uniqueness) is crucial in this
People are working on a CPGAN, but that's at least a couple of years
in the future, and it's modeled explicitly on CPAN.
