There's nothing like coming into a discussion *really* late...

My only concern is that some of our BuildRequires will need to be on
perl-foo-devel instead of perl(foo), and I may or may not be able to
figure that out automatically in cpanspec.

If I were going to look for things to be concerned with in the perl
package, I'd probably worry about noarch packages being in
/usr/lib/perl5 instead of /usr/share/perl5.  :-)
