personally, i'm against requiring anything from CPAN for something as
simple as the commit mail script. especially given CPAN's annoying
habit of trying to download and install a new version of perl whenever
i use it on a freebsd box (at least one that doesn't have a bleeding
edge perl installed from ports).
