Tie::ShadowHash is the name of the module. I just hate long filenames for
the distribution tarball. (I'm not the only one on CPAN; not everyone
names the distribution after the full name of hte module.)
libtie-shadowhash-perl is the correct name for the Debian package.
(I'm the upstream author, not that I've put out a new release in half of
forever. If I do put out another release, I'd consider renaming it to
something a bit more consistent with the module name. All of my Perl
modules from that era used abbreviated distribution names; see also
Gateway, ANSIColor, podlators, etc.)
