As in 'use MP3::Info 5.0;'

I thought about this as well, but it may not work well with modules
that are modified and then added to the Squeezebox tarball without
the changes being sent back to CPAN (I think the MP3::Info module
is in this state?) You might have the problem of the CPAN module
version number exceeding the Squeezebox one over time.

Alternatively, you can bundle an entire version of perl that's
guaranteed to work, but that's very large, unwieldy and probably
only sustainable for the 2 or 3 largest Squeezebox OS platforms.
