It seems reasonable to me. There are some minor cosmetic changes I'd
like to make (perl_version as opposed to perl_vers, use perl_version
everywhere, macroize the other versions so they're easily fixable with
new perl releases).

I was initially concerned about circular deps (perl-devel will require
all of these new subpackages), but perl won't need them as
BuildRequires, so it should be ok.
