[sf-perl] find latest version of module from cpan

i'm looking for a way, either by probing cpan.perl.org via lwp, or via the 
cpan shell, to find out the latest available version of a module 
programatically.  constraints are:

(*) module is not installed, nor will be (long story)

(*) needs to run without human intervention.

i've looked in the CPAN::Shell docs and don't see an interface that would 
lead me in the right direction.  Any hints?
