Basically, it's the next generation cpan client.  Most of the really big
advantages are if you decide to script it: It has a _much_ better, and
more flexible, API.  It's also cleaned up some of the cruft that's
migrated into cpan over the years, and organized it a bit better.

As of perl 5.10 it is standard with perl, and the old cpan module/client
has been depreciated.  The plan is to remove the old client altogether.

So, the biggest advantage at the moment is that you won't have to set up a
new client in a couple of years when cpan gets removed from the perl core.
