Whilst it's fine for a package to provide functionality different from its name,
the problem here is that the package is saying it provides something that it
doesn't, namely a perl module called "mixin". Pretending that it provides this
package means that it's not possible for, at some future date, a new perl module
of that name to be packaged properly without clashing with this one.
