I thought the "Perl" license was removed already? TTBOMK there is no
such thing as a "Perl license", the usual "under the same terms as
Perl itself" clause translates to "Artistic or GPL-1+".

Which leads me to 3 other observations on the mentioned URL:
* "This is a dual-licensed GPL/Artistic work such as Perl:
   License: GPL-2+ or Artistic-2.0"
   looks wrong, perl is TTBOMK licensed under Artistic (=1) or GPL 1
   or later
* "Perl     Perl license (equates to “GPL-1+ or Artistic-1"
  besides the missing closing parenthesis: I vaguely remember that
  the Artistic license (usually without the "1" suffix [0]) was referred to
  as 'Artistic' without any version.
* The link in "For versions, consult the Perl Foundation" doesn't
  lead to the expected page.

Cf. e.g. http://www.opensource.org/licenses/artistic-license.php
