magpie update now waaaaaaay faster!

"magpie update", used to update automatically a perl module rpm to its latest version, was a bit slow. the culprit was parse::cpan::packages, taking a whole 10 seconds to parse 02packages.details.txt.gz

fortunately, i found parse::cpan::packages::fast (from slaven++), which does exactly the same job in less than a second...

so, with a 16-line patch (-2/+2), magpie update now is almost instant. cpan is definitely the home of nice gems, and *the* advantage of perl.
