CPAN Meta Browser

I've been looking for a better way to access the public CPAN metadata in files such as 02packages.details.txt and 06perms.txt, for checking the module index and CPAN permissions. For the latter you can always sign into but I found that to be inconvenient. So I wrote a simple app that caches these files, converts them into a SQLite database, and then serves query results. You can find the result here: and the source on GitHub. If there's any other metadata files that you want to be searchable let me know in a comment or GitHub issue.
