Note that the reason why 0.06003 (and 0.06002, don't know about
0.06001) probably isn't available as a PPM package is because there
are failing test cases (in t\cdbi-t\02-Film). So, even if he got it
from the CPAN, it would still require a forced install.

ActiveState packages the latest module version which has no failing
tests, hence, 0.06003 will never be available from them. This is a
reasonable policy since PPM packages are expected to work and not just
be a fancy different way of distributing Perl modules.
