Right, but the tool in perl-Mail-SPF-Query is from february 2006, while
the one from perl-Mail-SPF is from may 2007.

Besides the name is not always the best indication. At least perl-Mail-SPF
is a more correct and complete implementation and therefor is more likely
to provide better results.

I still ship spfquery and spfd from perl-Mail-SPF-Query, but in
/usr/share/doc/ instead.
