in thread What sets Perl back

The one thing that does irritate me, is "dependencies". I start screaming when I need to track through 3( or more ) dependency levels, when trying to install a module. What I would like to see are more "bundles", which let you get everything needed in one download, and prompts you if it detects newer versions, etc.

This is something I would be more interested in seeing. I have only been able to install one Module since i started perl about a month ago and that was Net::RawIP. Eversince then, I get this error:
530 Sorry, the maximum number of clients (2) from your host are alread +y connected. 421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection. Login failed. Local directory now /root/.cpan/sources/modules Not connected. Not connected. Not connected. Not connected. Not connected. Not connected. Not connected. Bad luck... Still failed! Can't access URL ftp://cpan.netnitco.net/pub/mirrors/CPAN/modules/03mo +dlist.data.gz.
when i know for a fact that the server is not full everytime I try to install a module via CPAN. Seeing more bundled modules with dependencies in tow would ease the troubles of installing modules manually.

    That's not a server full error, that's a "you're hitting me too much" error, try a different mirror?
