hardcoded URL http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/ #208
Hardcoded URLs in programs make me always nervous. There is the case that I have a local mirror, that the URL goes away, that I disturb the owner of the URL, etc., etc.
Can we have a perlbrew that lets me choose from where the download happens?

There are still some search.cpan.org URLs in the code, but now we can set this env var:
To a "http://" cpan mirror URL to allow downloading perl tarballs from different mirrors. I'm closing this issue now... let me know if more actions are needed.
