Not a lot, generally.

Err, Debian has over 900 -perl packages. While that may be only a
fraction of CPAN as a whole, it's certainly not "limited".
Now many of those may not be in the CPAN debs repository, but I think
that's more representative of the fact that Debian is liberal (some
might say indiscriminate) in accepting such packages into the
distribution, when compared with others.
