We used to do this at SGN, and it's OK if you're not really using CPAN
much, but it does not scale well if you use a lot of modules from CPAN.
You end up having to maintain in-house large numbers of interrelated
Debian packages, and every time somebody wants to start using a new
module, or there's a critical upstream bugfix, you need to make new
releases of at least one, possibly many, of your in-house Debian packages.
