So even though it does provide a Perl::Tidy module, it's also a
stand-alone program that reformats existing Perl code.  What we could to
is split the package in two: one with the Perl::Tidy module (called
perl-tidy) and one with the stand-alone script (called perltidy).  I
think that would be a little confusing though.
