[tpm] Separating modules with Dist::Zilla and Github?

I think what you're trying to do is probably a bad idea, although being in
one or two git repositories doesn't have much to do with it. Why would you
produce two separate dists from the same logical grouping of files? i.e.,
both dists would include the same tests etc? If that is the case you would
probably want Tools::Inflate::Tire in the same dist as Tools::Inflate. If
they are separate than I'd recommend just having two sub folders in one git
repo and two separate dist.ini's to produce each dist - no separate repo
