Eh, I did mention that I'm NOT proposing pkgsrc's infrastructure to map 
Perl Modules to pkgsrc, paths, right?

Something like that. Basically, for every release of Perl, a list of 
Module/Version pairs.

Yes. grep the version number and compare to the required one.

I seem to have forgotten to mention that I'm NOT proposing to automatically 
have pkgsrc map Perl Module names to pkgsrc package names.
