Ahh, that's cool!

I was saying a few months back (after Alec's Git talk) that it would be 
nice to replace CPAN with /git(hub)?/. Then I can fork someone's 
Foo::Bar and use it, and allow it to be used, without the confusion that 
it would cause if I put a second Foo::Bar on CPAN.

possibly something like:
    use Foo::Bar:auth<github:RICKM> 9813
(where 9813 is the revision number used as a $VERSION)

I've not been a part of any of this discussion and had no idea about 
this auth stuff or any of it so may be totally off base. Forgive me :-D
