As I've never written a CPAN module I cannot give you any advice on the "process", however, as a recent convert to perl and an avid supporter I'd like to offer my experience as a CPAN hunter....
If I search for a module the MOST important thing in determining between two modules is the last update / version. The one with the latest updates usually gets the first try. Call me fickle, but there is something that draws me towards actively maintained modules.
Also, as I tend to code for Winblows so having an Activestate PPMx clinches it for me.
Hope this helps.
