	And that's my cue to point out that while Gitpan isn't updated,
you can still use Git::CPAN::Patch, the module Gitpan is using under
the hood.

	# create git repo seeded with the module's CPAN latest version 
	$ git cpan-init Foo::Bar

	# create git repo seeded with the full BackPAN history of the
	# module
	$ git backpan-init Foo::Bar

And, yes, one of the requested new feature for G:C:P is to be able to grok 
a distribution's META.yml and clone its clone repo if it already exist.
It's something I'll work on as soon as I have some tuits. :-)
