I will add that it looks to me as if the base Fedora Perl package does the same
thing.  And it makes sense: a package does "use mixin 'something'", so it needs
the package that supplies perl(mixin), which happens to be Spiffy.  Only RPM's
automatic dependency generation doesn't understand that Spiffy provides
perl(mixin), so we have to instruct it.  I suppose the dependency generator
doesn't understand because the Spiffy module doesn't have a file named
"mixin.pm", nor does it have a "package mixin" statement.  It's pretty esoteric
code that looks like it inserts things into the symbol table.

So I think it's perfectly reasonable to have this package provide perl(mixin),
because in reality it does provide perl(mixin).
