Perlbug can tell people where to report CPAN bugs: it just requires
%Module::CoreList::bug_tracker to be updated to know the details for more
modules; at the moment, 'CPAN' itself is still listed as undef, unlike for

    'App::Prove'            => '',

I think this stems from when the feature was first added, to make
everything undef by default, until an individual module is confirmed as
having a particular bug-reporting URL.

Modern art:
    "That's easy, I could have done that!"
    "Ah, but you didn't!"
