Sorry for the delay, but here's an update:

I'm asking Warren Togami to add the 'split out' perl modules to
comps.xml so that these modules are installed by default whenver perl
is.  This (I hope, let me know if I'm wrong) addressess Jose's concern
that the modules will be missing in most fedora installs and be very
annoying to users, but still allows them to be removed easily if you
don't want them.  Does this work for everyone?
