Well and I thought the general naming convention of cpan modules would be to prefix them with perl- anyway; isn't that the case? If that is so, then perl-rename would make more sense to me.
Prefixing is the convention when packaging a library for a language other than C/C++. E.G., perl-term-readkey, python-sqlalchemy, ruby-hpricot, et cetera. perl-rename isn't a library, but it does come from CPAN. It makes sense to hold onto the perl- prefix. Considering all of the other comments that I've seen about prename, it's probably worth deleting.
