FWIW, Dermot, I also suggest you go down this road. There are lot
of reasons to do it that way. A major reason is that shoehorning
CPAN into the distributor’s packaging model is always a bad fit
because CPAN has no release process and every author handles API
stability differently. You want full control over which version
of which modules you install. (Strictly speaking you even want
to keep your own vetted CPAN mirror. :-) )

None of this, btw, is difficult.
