I could try the old developer trick of "in the next version..." - but 
the short of it is, you're right, we cheat here. Instead of expending 
time on checking module versions (which seem to change numbering schemes 
between releases sometimes), we just check to see if we need to make an 
ebuild for it or if one already exists (after making sure we are in 
$OVERLAY/perl-gcpan of course, and not upgrading your 'real' tree) - 
then we just rely on portage to handle the -u for anything that has an 
ebuild greater than what's installed. Cheap, tawdry - sure beat writing 
version checkers (or adding deps for one)(or stealing more code from how 
cpan handles it, which I will show off in the next version with some new 
fangled dep checking).
