in thread perlbrew uses ~/.cpanm/ - why's that then?

Thanks for your replies and yes, I could make it open to root and me, but I think I'd want a different collection of modules for each version of Perl in cpan (some new modules won't work on older Perls), so how would I patch cpanm to be different for all the Perls available in perlbrew?

A bit of a faff when I thought perlbrew had self-contained environments.

I'll look into it more...!

    Honestly, I have no idea why perlbrew team decided to not patch cpanm in the way you describe. Maybe it was hard enough to patch it to work with perlbrew at all (mind you, the default cpanm doesn't).
