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?
