Bug#114261: ITP: libfile-cache-perl -- File::Cache, a filesystem-based object store

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libfile-cache-perl
  Version         : 0.16
  Upstream Author : DeWitt Clinton <dewitt@unto.net>
* URL             : http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/File/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : File::Cache, a filesystem-based object store
   File::Cache implements an object store which shares data across
   process boundaries via the filesystem. It was written to complement
   IPC::Cache, but is suitable for larger numbers of more complex
   objects than that module.
   This module will eventually be superseded by the newer Cache::Cache.

In case you're wondering why I'm packaging this, given the last
sentence: newsclipper uses it, but currently can't depend on it because
it's not packaged.
