License tag for perl modules

So there was a question about licenses for one of my perl rpms in
Fedora, and I asked Tom Callaway about it.  He explained that the
correct tag for my module, as well as any that are distributed 'under
the same terms as perl itself' is:

License: GPL+ or Artistic

So you may want to update the license field as you go (Not blindly, of
course...there are probably exceptions).
