Hm, I only now realized that there really *is* a MIME::Tools module,
which is just a frontend for configuring the logging and debugging of
the other modules.
Since it also contains the primary documentation, I suppose
it could be viewed as the primary module, and the name of the
binary package should indeed be libmime-tools-perl.
I'm still not sure if it's worth it to rename, though.
Sorry for the confusion.
