CPAN XML-RPC

[ #3082 ]
Well, I just uploaded a couple of stray modules to CPAN, and wondered what I could work on next.

I read acme's idea about having a CPAN sumo package the other day, which installs the whole of CPAN on your machine. Now, it would be pretty stupid if two machines in an organization had to install this thing. In fact, thinking about it, it would be pretty stupid if two machines in an organization had to download and install the same module, when they can share the code. Then each client does something like:

$modserver = new Frontier::Client(...);
sub UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD {
$UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD =~ s/::/./g;
return $modserver->call($UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD, @_);
}

Neat, huh?
