Re: advice needed for packaging - Time-modules

They can, even for C libraries.  The main reason not to include
executables normally for lib* packages is that if you change the SONAME,
you want both packages to be co-installable, and that's not possible
unless every file in the package is versioned.  But that problem doesn't
apply to Perl modules.
