  • "This is the third time in under 24 hours I've temporarily downloaded and built this particular module, are you sure you don't want me to install it, permanently?"
    • I've been thinking a bit about this, and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea to have a middle ground: semi-permanently installed modules, or a more permanent CPAN cache, one that isn't emptied so often when CPAN.pm tries to save space by removing distributions from its cache. CPAN.pm could automatically store modules there that are only required to run tests, without asking. The more often a module is used, the more "sticky" it becomes, thus, less likely to be removed. A module that hasn't been used in months could be removed.
