install - Dummy module that prevents unexpected results from the CPAN shell
Many people at one time or another mistakenly ask the CPAN shell to install the 'install' module:
$ cpan install Foo
Unlike lots of package managers, the CPAN shell doesn't use commands like 'install' so this tries to install the 'install' module as well as the 'Foo' module.
This 'install' module does absolutely nothing except install and has no prerequisites so nothing bad will happen when this mistake is made.
