Well, a) many ship both versions of apache, which means both versions of 
mod_perl and b) In debian's case, while the files themselves may be 
different there is a standard method for determining the debian package 
name for any given perl module name that assumes that the module names 
are unique, so I presume that we'll need a change to the debian package 
naming "algorithm" (for some use of the word) for perl modules.
