Bug#367007: ITP: libnet-z3950-zoom-perl -- Perl extension implementing the ZOOM API for Information Retrieval via Z39.50

  Description     : Perl extension implementing the ZOOM API for Information Retrieval via Z39.50

 This module provides a nice, Perlish implementation of the ZOOM
 Abstract API described and documented at http://zoom.z3950.org/api/
 The ZOOM module is implemented as a set of thin classes on top of the
 non-OO functions provided by this distribution's Net::Z3950::ZOOM module,
 which in turn is a thin layer on top of the ZOOM-C code supplied as part of
 Index Data's YAZ Toolkit.  Because ZOOM-C is also the underlying code that
 implements ZOOM bindings in C++, Visual Basic, Scheme, Ruby, .NET
 (including C#) and other languages, this Perl module works compatibly with
 those other implementations.  (Of course, the point of a public API such as
 ZOOM is that all implementations should be compatible anyway; but knowing
 that the same code is running is reassuring.)

Additional comments:
* libnet-z3950-zoom-perl is the "successor" of libnet-z3950-perl.
* libnet-z3950-zoom-perl currently FTBFS on Debian because it depends
  on (lib)yaz(-dev) >= 2.1.11, and unfortunately only 2.1.8 is in
  Debian; the current upstream version is 2.1.18; cf. #359265
