depends on one version of Foo and B depends on an incompatible version
of Foo; then both versions of Foo need to work together. And that's just

Yeah. At the time I wrote that I hadn't yet read S11. The new CPAN needs
to handle all the metadata in S11.
use Whiteness:from<perl5 Acme::Bleach 1.12 cpan:DCONWAY>;
So we have to give some thought to how the modules are going to be
stored in the system.
