[Melbourne-pm] Goddamnit, CPAN authors, why?!

For some reason, the author of Crypt::Password has deleted the module 
off CPAN entirely.
"Helpfully", cpanm somehow decides that the "stylehouse" module could 
provide Crypt::Password instead.. which it then dies on, as that module 
appears to be more of an art project than an actual module at the 
moment. (It's aim is to make an impressionist file browser, eventually)


Needless to say, this presents two problems.
1) All modules depending upon Crypt::Password are now broken
2) cpanm's attempt to resolve the problem automatically just makes 
things even more confusing.
