This AUR package is very outdated (version 0.9007) and have no
maintainer. Personally I don't like packages that duplicate Perl's core
functionality in AUR, especially now when 'perl' have no 'provides'
array, because they favours someone to add 'perl-something' in
dependencies (just because there is such package in AUR) instead of just
add 'perl'.

This is just my opinion as a contributor. If you think this package is
useful in AUR, please adopt and update it.
