Is there any customary way to put scripts on
CPAN? I've already put connect-tunnel
on CPAN, just like a module distribution, but I
wonder if that's the standard way to do it.
Note to self: If it's a question,
it on perlmonks.

The scripts section is deader than dead.
Things do not work very well in the script section [cpan.org]. Take the first script for example:
It's nice to be able to package a script through make dist, rather than just sending a bare file to PAUSE. This gives room for tests and examples. How would search.cpan differentiate a script from a module? Via the ME
This is the mostly right thing, but the metadata should provide more information for the indexing to make it more obvious and provide the end user with more information overall and not just for scripts v. modules. Yes, wouldn't it be nice...?
OK, it's a quite straightforward system.
That'll teach me to read the FAQ. :-S
The scripts have to be in a single file.
So much for tests.
