I think the existing /usr/share/findimagedupes/lib would be fine.
As for the naming convention, maybe the App:: namespace on CPAN would do?
OTOH as long as they're private nobody should care.

It seems the standard way to go is with Inline::MakeMaker. Here's
a lightly tested patch that seems to work for me, hope you find
it useful.

I tried to be non-intrusive, but I couldn't resist reworking the
sed parts of debian/rules a bit. YMMV there of course :)
