Mini-Mirror the CPAN efficiently
I wrote a quick hack to mirror only the parts of CPAN
will need to install any random module. It finds the good 250Meg out of the 1.2Gig in the current CPAN, and does minimal work both the first time, and every update. It's gentle enough that you could probably run it daily against any CPAN mirror of your choosing and not be noticed.
Feedback welcome. Enjoy.
