In this day and age, seamless delegation is so trivial, but I was heartened
to read;

*"Update #1 (2018-05-19)*:  There's some confusion around whether or not
existing search.cpan.org URLs will continue to work.  They will!  The vast
majority of of them will be transparently served by MetaCPAN pages.  You do
not need to update any links right now."

Provided that eases away 95% of maintenance headaches, it seems sysadmins
and users all get to have our cake.
