I think it makes sense to split out SWISH::API since its unbundled from

I also think the other Perl-related bits should be in separate packages.
There is an old RPM spec file in swish-e/rpm/ which is
divided into a number of packages.  Its probably useless in itself but
its an example of my thinking in FC3.  My main problem with maintaining
Fedora RPMs was the lack of CPAN modules provided by Fedora.  swish-e
always ended up with 30 perl dependencies that couldn't easily be
fulfilled by RPMs.  Maybe that situation is better now?
