Sorry, but 'the CPAN' and search.cpan are pretty intertwined in the minds of people. The immediate reaction of someone who needs a module for something is to hit up search.cpan (or the new and lovely metacpan[1], thanks moritz!) and without that, it's a bit useless. All of that is of course aside from the newbies who haven't thought about what CPAN is beyond a searchable web interface and a client that installs modules (and for all they know, it's doing this off search.cpan).
