Build a (relocatable perl) include wxWidgets and everything else needed to run Padre. zip it up and distribute Padre (and some of its plugins) this way. See Dist::Perl::XL in the SVN repository of Padre for an attempt.

I started working on a small gtk2-perl install CPAN wizzard for Ubuntu. Gtk2-perl is in the default install, wx isn't. The idea is to install dependencies packages from the distro repositories and Padre including needed dependencies (not on repositories, newer versions, etc) from CPAN. However. It's better to wait for Ubuntu 9.10 as many dependencies will be packaged for Ubuntu.

I wonder if when most dependencies are there when it would be better just to package Ubuntu instead of using CPAN. Of course, as we bump needed versions numbers, after a while we'll run into the trouble of needing a newer version than the packaged modules supplied with Ubuntu.
