Perl Modules, 'cpan', and Archive::Zip

Hi guys.  Just curious why the 'perl -MCPAN -e shell' instead of the 
installed 'cpan' script?  Honestly I don't know much about it other than 
it eases installation for the items that are installed in a standard 
way.  Also, I added Archive::Zip in it's own subsection.  It looks fine 
to me, but Randy, since you've done a lot with the Perl Modules 
recently, would you mind taking a look and see if it fits well with the 
intended view of the page?  TIA
