Subject: Module::AutoInstall throws you into CPAN.pm configuration
Hi, even though M::AI prefers the use of CPANPLUS if available, it still loads CPAN.pm under '_check_lock', which will throw you into the CPAN.pm configuration if you have not configured CPAN.pm. I'm not sure there's a way around this, but at least a diagnostic would be nice...
CPAN being loaded at this point can also cause issues with automated build environments (such as the one in Fedora), where CPAN.pm is not available by default... and even if it were, no one is there to answer the prompts :) See, e.g.: build w/o CPAN.pm avail: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=1323054&name=build.log build w/CPAN.pm avail: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=1323071&name=build.log
