mmm... Bit of a double edged sword that.
It's very confusing trying to work out which is the correct version
(which version has the feature I need and has been tested and is not
broken with something else I'm not interested in). I'm currently
experiencing this affect trying to track various versions of a Git
support for Vim package.
On the balance I would prefer to keep CPAN, possibly with a fall-back to
a GitHub style approach for bleeding edge.
