I would like to fix this package

The fix is easy - just update to latest upstream. However, there is a
twist: for some reason the package name is all lowercase and this does
not match the upstream name MouseX::Getopt.

Unfortunate, but fixable, and a fix worth I would consider worth the time :)

To get it to build one
must first unpack the tarball, rename the directory, and repack it.
Rinse and repeat for every new upstream release.

The specfile uses %setup -n to already specify an alternate name.
Why would it need to be repacked?

Better would be to rename the package itself, to perl-MouseX-Getopt,
in both Factory and the devel project, but how to do this correctly?

copypac in a first step, in a second step, osc mv, in a third,
the in-file contents get updated.
(One and three can be combined, but is not really needed to make it that
complicated.)
