 	The p6l (perl6-language) list is the appropriate forum for that sort 
of idea.  There's been a lot of discussion of CPAN-related stuff, but not much 
in the way of conclusions.

 	Part of the problem has been that the term "CPAN" refers to at least 3 
different things.  See http://perlcabal.org/syn/S22.html#Terminology_and_Scope 
for information.
