more more cpan metrics

As suggested, I have run the code such that a dist’s mere appearance on the CPAN is not counted. In other words: code exists if it is used. If not, it is ignored entirely. It ends up not having much effect.

author   | volume | req (old) | req (new)
ZOFFIX   | 1      | 145       | (n/a)
ADAMK    | 2      | 32        | 34
RJBS     | 3      | 43        | 43
MIYAGAWA | 4      | 82        | 84
NUFFIN   | 5      | 85        | 91
GBARR    | 114    |  1        | 1
PMQS     | 221    |  2        | 2
PETDANCE | 31     |  3        | 3
MSCHWERN | 40     |  4        | 4
SAPER    | 32     |  5        | 5

JROCKWAY suggested running this in reverse: see who uses the most. I think that doing both would be interesting: who gets used a lot, “despite” also using a lot of prereqs.
