Correct package name for Perl bindings?

I'm currently working on packaging the hivex library and tools (read and
write Windows binary registry hives) via Debian mentoring. One question
that has come up is the appropriate naming of the binary package
containing the Perl bindings.

Currently I have it as "libhivex-perl" following the convention of the
other binary packages.

However my mentor, Paul Wise, has suggested I ask here since Perl Policy
4.2 suggests package name convention "...for module Foo::Bar is

The project uses the Win::Hivex namespace.

That suggests the package name here should be "libwin-hivex-perl", which
doesn't 'feel' correct. Is "libhivex-perl" acceptable?

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hivex
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/h/hivex/hivex_1.2.1-2.dsc
