For my part I was supremely grateful for search.cpan.org ever since I discovered it almost two decades ago. Until metacpan.org launched, even with some initial bugs and index drop-outs; which were addressed quickly because of the open code and better reporting/social mechanisms. At that point I was only irritated every time I used a search engine and search.capn.org was the top result and metacpan.org wasn't even on the top page; or someone linked to the former and sent me to go find that module on the latter because I prefer it enough to do so.
