Your understanding is correct.
CPANPLUS will absolutely be in 5.10. Rafael, the pumpking, has announced
a feature freeze. He is committed to make a release happen in September.
IMHO, the question is: When will 5.10 be the default perl installation
on debian? If it's not going into testing reasonably quickly, then
packaging CPANPLUS separately might be a good choice.
