Well, that's what the given URL gets you. But that exactly misses
my point, probably because I didn't express myself clearly.

The situation being addressed is where someone has got hold of
something labelled "Perl" and possibly also "latest" from, err,
perhaps Matt's Script Archive. The problem is that _every_
(production) version of Perl has the label "latest" at some point of
its life cycle. So we need to point to something which contains
the explicit numbers 5.005_03, to distinguish from all the other "latest"
versions.

The simplest fix would be if the README on CPAN/src contained somewhere
prominent the words "Latest is 5.005_03". And if this info was
automatically updated when the "latest" changes, of course.
