Given that we don't support denoting multiple licenses, I concur that it
is appropriate to tag perl with artistic instead of GPL2.

I meant to add the file artistic-license, and then to add perl-license
that explains dual licensing under GPL and artistic, and then tag perl
with perl-license.  But just tagging with artistic sounds fine.
