There is that META.yml file within the package, but, eg,
 ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/authors/id/G/GO/GOZER/
doesn't have an explicit mod_perl-2.0.0-RC1.meta
file, like there is for, eg, mod_perl-1.28.

That would be the best solution, of course. It seems to be
working in principle for some examples; for example, for
IO-Prompt, the META.yml file includes

name: IO-Prompt
version: 0.02
no_index:
  directory:
    - inc
generated_by: Module::Install version 0.35

and in the IO-Prompt-0.02/inc/ directory there's, for
example, Module::Install, and yet the CPAN indexer correctly
associates Module::Install with the Module-Install
distribution (this is actually a good test, as IO-Prompt
and Module-Install have Autrijus Tang as the author, so
it's not a question of permissions that Module::Install
of IO-Prompt didn't get indexed).
