I like this change, but looking at the updated manifest, lib/Foo/
goes _after_ lib/Foo/Bar/*, not before.  I don't have a strong opinion,
but I think I'd prefer it to go before, like you intended.

cpan/Archive-Tar/lib/Archive/Tar/                Archive::Tar
cpan/Archive-Tar/lib/Archive/                     Archive::Tar
