It's not clear to me that this is actually something in the CPAN 
versions.  I don't know enough about the "system".  What I do know is 
that when I downloaded Pod::Checker 1.72 from a tarball on CPAN, that it 
had unix line endings when I unpacked it, whereas the version in blead 
had dos line endings.  I don't know if we can just change the blead line 
endings without having to bump the version number and notify the 
upstream maintainer.
