./README-45-    This library is free software. You can modify and or distribute it under the same
./README:46:    terms as Perl itself.

Note here: "Perl itself" implies "Artistic OR ( GPL-1 OR LATER )", and thus, the top level declared license and the license of the code units differ substantially, especially as FSF define "Artistic only" to be a Non-Free license.
