The standard naming conversion for Perl modules is to name them after
the CPAN package.  For most things on CPAN, the package is named after
the primary module.  So HTML::Mason is in HTML-Mason cpan package
which becomes perl-HTML-Mason RPM.

Some older modules have packages which are named differently.  For
example, LWP module is in perl-libwww-perl.  IO-stringy is the name of
the CPAN package; there is an IO::Stringy module but it is just
documentation.
