The core PDL distribution should provide support to allow PDL::PP based modules to work seamlessly with CPAN and PAUSE as far as indexing the modules provided. There are a number of ways to do this but we (the PDL developers and community) should settle on a "best practices" method and provide the needed build support for ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build and others.

Specific requirements:
- Information should only be entered once
- Ideally, module/package and version should be together
- A way to propagate this to other files/folders would be nice
