Answer: No, I already maintain several other perl packages. No sponsor

1. Okay, description was a little weak. New text ripped from Debian package:

Summary: Compiler for the INTERCAL language

This package provides a Perl-based compiler for the INTERCAL programming
language, usable either from the command line or as a Perl module.

CLC-INTERCAL is designed to be almost compatible with the original (Princeton
1972) compiler. It also implements several extensions to the original language,
including support for object orientation, operator overloading and quantum

2. Indeed. But RPM can't cope with hyphens in version numbers (and even if it
could, it probably wouldn't realise that 1.-94.-2 is a higher version number
than 1.-94.-3). It seemed appropriate for INTERCAL to seek a particularly
obtuse solution, but on second thought...

Since it's not yet a 1.0 release, how about Version: 0 and Release:
0.%{X}.1._94._2 (as a non-numeric pre-release tag).

3. %{summary} comment is moot if I stick the proper version into release tag;
the offending sub-package is no longer necessary. 

Only Group: %{group} remains in UI-X sub-package.
