|Subject:||Add a generic capability to force upgrades|
For background seeAs discussed in the above URI, one of the three patterns for installers requires that the installation infrstructure itself is forced to upgrade as soon as possible. Module::Build is the main candidate for needing this sort of features, although they may well do it themselves. ExtUtils::Install on Win32 is another example. While not yet of critical need, it may be worth examining what it would take to add general forced-upgrade support to CPAN.pm for a limited number of modules (for example, those in Bundle::CPAN at the most).
