I personally vote to add for all new versions of p5-* modules next line
This transition is transparent enough for end-users. Massive one-stage
change for all p5-ports will produce unnecessary distfiles refetching.
I suppose we must make decision about this PR.
This proposal can be official policy or should be rejected with
justification for refusal. Technically every maintainer can add your own
DIST_SUBDIR lines without any violations of "Porters handbook".
One more argument to accept explicit p5-subdir is simple consideration
to avoid collisions with other languages. Currently this is not the case
but I think this approach must be standard for all "dynamic" languages
like Perl, Python and Ruby (or, even C# ;)
