I was wondering why you don't package it yourself but after looking
at it I think I know :)

Anyway, a preliminary package is available in the pkg-perl svn repo.
But I'm not sure this is a module ready for Debian:
- not released upstream
- warnings about pending API changes and experimental character
- (fun with missing parts in META.yml and half-baked POD)
- a botched test
- tests fail with xvfb and pass without only because most of them are
  skipped due to a missing connection to the xserver (in my
  cowbuilder chroot)

If you nevertheless feel like uploading, I suggest to target
experimental for the time being.
