It's true, if you need something done, someone may well have done it before and released a CPAN module. However, there are some that I think might have not been necessary.
After the initial install of my dev area (see last post), I checkout of svn and git my projects again, and started work. However, over the last week, I found a number of other lacking CPAN modules, which I then needed to download.

Further CPAN modules:
i http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/D/DR/DROLSKY/List-AllUtils-0.02.tar.gz (dodgy md5, so use full url)
I'm not really sure why we particularly needed List-AllUtils, since List-Utils and List-MoreUtils are already being used, but someone has done so. Also, I am not sure why this (and List-MoreUtils before it) had dodgy md5sums. (I should probably put in an RT ticket).
Anyway, just an update.
