Thanks for the reply (and link) !

I've examined Gabor Szabo' SCO
his article:
Building an open source clone of using the MetaCPAN API
which looks promising. But seems to require running a service on it's own port. Which I'd like to avoid. While I guess I could (re)process metacpans data. That seems grossly inefficient, and slow. especially given I'm already running a mirror. Seems it'd be a whole lot smarter to simply pull the data from my own copy and process that. Maybe populating a DB with it, and pulling it from there. This lead me to:
but they're more Package centric, rather than: module | dist | author , as search, and metacpan do
but I don't think it'll scale well. But there's also:
which seems a bit closer, and might scale better, as well.

Anyway, that's as far as I've managed so far. But was hoping to I might find a quick "drop in" replacement I might implement.

Thanks again!

    Wow! I didn't know you could just download one. If you want it to scale this sounds like a job for Apache2::CPAN::Search from the CPAN::Search::Lite dist.
