Both of them will stash all the required CPAN dists _inside_ your project. So all you need to do is checkout the project from the VCS system, fire some carton or dzil commands, and it will build everything into a local::lib sandbox (without going over the network, and without "accidentally" upgrading to the latest version on the CPAN).

Each of my projects has its own private slice of CPAN that installs into its own local::lib. This means I never contaminate my environment for one project with the modules from another project. All is neat, clean, and reproducible.
