I think someone said a few months (a year?) ago that they are
considering a way to make CPAN packages known to dpkg, i.e. you would
be able to run something which will download and install a package
from CPAN and make it known to the dpkg database so other packages
which require it will know it is installed.

At least that's what I think I remember.
