I like Python a lot. That said, it looks like Perl's CPAN currently
has approximately double the number of packages in the Cheeseshop.

I'm guessing the CPAN is still growing, but I don't know how fast it
is growing compared to the Cheeseshop.

I won't venture a guess as to which has a higher percentage of older
unmaintained packages.
