perl module packages: why do they exist?

I don't understand why the debian developers are undertaking to
maintain debianified version of Perl modules when the CPAN module and
its mechanisms are so much more native to Perl, are well-supported by
the Perl community, etc?  Besides, Perl already has it's own automated
upgrade system (CPAN), it's own configuration mgmt system (Config),
and it's own automated compilation and installation system (MakeMaker).

It seems like making work for no good reason.  Let all the Perl
modules be installed by way of CPAN.  You could even have simple
scripts driving installation.  I really feel we'd have a better and
more supported Perl product that way.
