[Sorry for the fragmented response. I'm a bit scatter-brained at this hour]

Locally patched modules are an interesting case. You could stash your patched tarballs elsewhere in the repository, and then manually inject them (by copying) them into the lpan for each application that needs them.

Or perhaps, you could establish a separate private CPAN just for patched distros and use CPAN::Site to produce an 02packages that falls back to the public CPAN for everything else. That would give you a mechanism for distributing patched distros (or any of your private distros) throughout the organization.

Either way, each application ultimately gets a separate copy of the patched distro in its lpan. The only difference is how that distro get's delivered into the lpan.

Off to bed now.
