biased answer: ugh, why?
That reminds me some of the libfoo-bar-moo-invent-something-else-here
packages we have in the archive.
One possible answer to "why?" is that libfoo-bar-baz allows users easy
access to a debian package that directly corresponds to the upstream
In the case of a perl package on CPAN it would be called Test::File.
In debian it would be called libtest-file-perl since the perl module
is a library, renamed test-file in accordance with debian policy and -
perl added to denote which programming language the package is written
in. This allows one to have libtest-file, libtest-file-ruby, etc,
without too many namespace collisions. Since a vast majority of debian
perl packages are named this way, users know what to look for on a
debian system simply by the upstream name.
