It seems to be traditional, but I don't like it and hope it isn't best practice.
I hate it when I ask CPANPLUS to install a module, and it goes off to
install the hundred-odd sub-dependencies.. and then I go to lunch, and
come back to find CPANPLUS paused after 5 modules on one that is
asking a question I don't care about.
