Thanks, Rafael.

I should have brought this up sooner, but isn't slfoo too shortish
for a debian package name?  The perl policy says:

 Perl module packages should be named for the primary module provided.  The
 naming convention for module Foo::Bar is libfoo-bar-perl.  Packages which
 include multiple modules may additionally include provides for those modules
 using the same convention.

The Python naming scheme seems to be python-foo.
