List of Common CPAN Modules

I've been having trouble finding a list of handy perl modules. You'd think that people would be ready with a list, but Perl.org doesn't keep any, and the Google search for 'list of common CPAN modules' doesn't return anything.

So, here's my list, for all it's worth. Feel free to post additions. I presume you've installed CPANPLUS, then invoked:

$ perl -MCPANPLUS -e shell
