I would stick to lib*-perl unless the project has a cultural identity by
itself, like mime-tools does. I think it should be completely case by

I, in the other hand, strongly discourage the use of perl-something or
something-perl (unless it's how the project is called by the community).

If there's a need to call "something-perl" or "perl-something" it's
better to stick to the standard schema. I mean, we don't need more than
one standard for that.
