It looks like this person, TTY, uploaded a modified version of Perl to
his/her CPAN directory. For virtually every module in Perl 5, there is a
rouge version provided by TTY.

I don't know what is going on. It smells like an attempt to compromise
people's systems, although it could be a mistake.

Even if it is a mistake, it's a big one--one that the PAUSE maintainers
should not overlook. Incompetence on this scale is a danger to CPAN.
