Net::Z3950 is deprecated, it relies on an old codebase that's
unmaintained and buggy. Net::Z3950::ZOOM is the module currently
used by Koha's Z39.50 client, and the only required module of the
two for Koha. The namespace is a bit confusing, I know, but due to
an API change in ZOOM, the old Net::Z3950 has been left as is until
ZOOM can handle the older syntax (to avoid breaking existing apps
that use Net::Z3950). Adding the old syntax to ZOOM is on the
roadmap, but due to financial limitations hasn't been prioritized.

Hope that clarifies.
