Somehow I do not follow.  Perl5.005 requires Devel::Peek from CPAN
(the latest version found there).  Perl5.006 does not require
Devel::Peek from CPAN, period.  Similarly for Devel::DProf.

How should the versions on CPAN and in Perl distribution be organized
to allow for this?  Is not it indexer's job, or's?
