  Would it be easy to split into two packages? For example, my
  wip/p5-HTML-Latex and wip/html2latex packages both come from same
  source (called html2latex).

Beyond the work you did, I'd have to avoid installing exiftool,
because the auto packlist includes it.  The package is 2.7MB and the
script is just over 64K.  The ratio of effort to disk space savings
for the few people who would like the perl module and not the
command-line tool seems quite unfavorable.
