/usr/bin/perl /usr/bin/perlbug /usr/bin/perldoc
/usr/bin/perl-5.004 /usr/bin/perlbug-5.005 /usr/bin/perldoc-5.005
If it were my choice to make, I would rather have a delimiter for the
version, as is the case in the current debian packages :-).
But I also would agree that if perl5.005 is explicitly mentioned in
the docs, then I suppose it's best that it be provided as well as---or
perhaps even instead of, in order to reduce confusion---perl-5.005.
