I did search for packages in Debian shipping files in
/usr/(lib|share)/perl5 that are not named lib.*-perl and after sorting
out most of them, I got the list below.
Should we file bugs to get these packages renamed?
opalmod: usr/share/perl5/OpaL/action.pm and 20 others
"my private utilities" package?
gnuift-perl: usr/share/perl5/GIFT/CFCMovingTarget.pm and 11 others
perl-mapscript: usr/lib/perl5/auto/mapscript/mapscript.bs and 2 others
perl-tk: usr/lib/perl5/Tie/Watch.pm and 646 others
Upstream name is "perltk".
(bioperl: usr/share/perl5/Bio/Align/AlignI.pm and 858 others)
Also has stuff in usr/bin/*, upstream name is "bioperl".
exactimage-perl: usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/ExactImage.pm and one other
perl-ifeffit: usr/lib/perl5/auto/Ifeffit/Ifeffit.bs and 2 others
rplay-perl: usr/share/perl5/RPTP.pm and 2 others
nfqueue-bindings-perl: usr/lib/perl5/libnfqueue.so and one other
perlmagick: usr/lib/perl5/Image/Magick.pm and 3 others
