Not really a can of worms, but not really necessary because unless the user is building dependencies themselves we can pretty easily find out what version of any dependency they've got: We build the Mac and Windows bundles ourselves and https://repology.org will tell us pretty quickly what version of any dependency goes with any distro. 

Finance::Quote is a bit different because it's so easily obtained/upgraded from CPAN that a lot of users won't have what's in their distros; it's also installed outside of the Windows and Mac bundles.
