Dist::Zilla::Role::MetaCPANInterfacer - something that will interact with MetaCPAN's API
# in your plugin/etc. code
my $obj = $self->mcpan->fetch(...);
This role is simply gives you a L<MetaCPAN::API> object to use with caching, so
that other plugins can share that cache. It uses the awesome example provided in
the L<MetaCPAN::API/SYNOPSIS>, contributed by Kent Fredric.
All of these attributes are f'ing lazy, because they like to sit around the house.
They are also read-write, as this is a role, and you might want to change around
B<Type:> A L<MetaCPAN::API> object
B<Default:> A new object, using C<<< mcpan_ua >>> as the Tiny user agent
B<Type:> A L<HTTP::Tiny> compatible user agent
B<Default:> A new L<HTTP::Tiny::Mech> object, using C<<< mcpan_mechua >>> as the Mechanized user agent
B<Type:> A L<WWW::Mechanize> compatible user agent
B<Default:> A new L<WWW::Mechanize::Cached::GZip> object, using C<<< mcpan_cache >>> as the cache attribute,
and some UA string changes.
B<Type:> A caching object
B<Default:> A new L<CHI> object, using the L<CHI::Driver::File|File> driver pointing to C<<< ~/.dzil/.webcache >>>
The caching stuff could potentially be split, but frankly, none of the existing
plugins really need caching all that much. I've at least called the C<<< .webcache >>>
directory a generic name, so feel free to re-use it.
(Honestly, the only reason why this is a DZ module B<IS> the caching directory
