You should be worried about distribution versions, not module
versions. This is the sort of thing that rpm (and similar tools) was
designed to solve. Nothing says you have to use the community RPMs. At
$work, we build RPMs of the stuff we depend on. Then, we build RPMs of
our stuff with dependencies on the RPMs we built of CPAN modules.
Then, we have our own internal RPM repository that we deploy to prod

That way, we control our upgrades, we know what we have where, and we
don't worry about module $VERSION numbers.
