whatever perlversion I update or CPAN-Module I install man or perldoc
always show the most recent documentation.

If I need colors and xrefs I can run one of the many pod2html
solutions to "dynamically" produce html and display them using w3m.

pod2texi is a seperate process which has to be run seperately to
update the tex and info files, with the result that the files produced
are most of the time outdated.

AFAIK emacs needs these files to be installed in a special directory
and parsed at start up. Thats what I call "static".

A "dynamic" solution would allow to update a CPAN-module while emacs
is running and next time you call info the _new_ documentation is

No idea if this is even possible with the actual Info implementation
in emacs.

Hope I was clearer
