With a little experience, you would have known that all Fedora 
perl*-module follow a strict naming scheme: perl-<module>, with <module> 
being named the upstream's perl-module naming.

In Fedora, in general, nothing prohibits packages whose names only 
differ in capitalization. However, I am not aware about any real world 
case having happened so far.
