That's fortunate.  In recent months I've encountered problems taking
this approach with a client's code base.  Off the top of my head, I
recall problems with Net::Amazon::S3 and Net::Server.  I might have
forgotten others.

Of course, I'm using open source software so I submit patches (if
others haven't beaten me to it) and wait patiently.  I'm not
complaining:  I don't feel entitled to anything more.

To work around this, you can point cpanm at your own Pinto with local
patches, but I don't see unpatched CPAN as a frustration-free way of
stating dependencies for large code bases.
