Review Request: clutter-perl - Perl bindings to the Clutter OpenGL canvas

Spec URL: http://allisson.fedorapeople.org/packages/clutter-perl/clutter-perl.spec
SRPM URL: http://allisson.fedorapeople.org/packages/clutter-perl/clutter-perl-0.8.2.0-1.fc10.src.rpm
Description: The Clutter Perl bindings allow you to write canvas-based applications in
a Perlish and object-oriented way, freeing you from having to care about
casting and memory management of the original Clutter C API, and yet
remaining close to its spirit.
You can find out more about Clutter at http://www.clutter-project.org.
Since this is a regular Perl module, hosted at CPAN, shouldn't it follow the normal Perl module naming guidelines? That would make it perl-Clutter.
Also, I believe the URL should be http://search.cpan.org/dist/Clutter/. The non-capitalized one takes me to a search page.
It might be good to contact upstream to see what the actual license of the package is. The README file says LGPLv2+; the Clutter man page says "LGPLv2+ or Artistic". The Clutter::TestHelper says "under the same terms as Clutter itself" and some other documents (Clutter::Cookbook, for example) just have a copyright notice with no license.
Marking needinfo w.r.t. comment #1.
I drop this request.
