I'd say that it depends on who the main user of the package is. If
people get the package because they need to XMLTV Perl modules to be
integrated into their own scripts, keep it as libxmltv-perl. Split off
the python stuff.

If you think people get your package to use the
grabbers/choosers/other user interfaces and the XMLTV perl modules are
just a backend, rename it to xmltv and provide libxmltv-perl.
Optionally, split off xmltv-python; especially if some of your users
likely only need the perl modules.

I had a similar situation with spamassassin.
