If only were up to the task.

Your distro really should be thought of as version 1.xx.  That  
describes its level of stability.  But then if you go to 2.0  
everybody's scripts break.

I've fanstasized about this syntax loading a particular module version:

   use 1::Devel::Cover;

It would search for $lib/1/Devel/, then fall back to $lib/ 
Devel/; an error would occur if the major version didn't match.

In theory the situation will be resolved in Perl 6.
