This actually occurs more often then you'd think. CPANPLUS has
explicit support for this:
CPAN Terminal> t SVN::Core
Testing SVN::Core (0)
[ERROR] SVN::Core is a known third-party module.
As it isn't available on the CPAN, CPANPLUS can't install it

SVN::Core is part of Subversion, published by Subversion, and should
be available for download at the following address:
