Thinking about this a bit more:

What I'd be interested in myself is a variation of CPAN/CPANPLUS that
installs modules for multiple perl versions simultaneously.

They key might be a simple engine that runs the same code repeatedly
using a list of perl binaries.

It might also be useful in running a test suite against a whole range
of perl's...
