More than that, this license strictly read doesn't even enable you to
*use* the software, as you can't (normally) use a perl script without
compiling it into bytecode. [Now, I assume that this was not the
intention of the developer, and you could probably get a judgement
either way, but license writing is best left to professionals.]
