Check out incoming on master. It is there now. Perhaps we need to
encourage somebody to make this hit the mirrors:
master:andersee% ls perl*
perl-5.005-base_5.005.03-5_i386.deb perl-5.005-debug_5.005.03-5_i386.deb perl-5.005-doc_5.005.03-5_all.deb
perl-5.005-suid_5.005.03-5_i386.deb perl-5.005-thread_5.005.03-5_i386.deb perl-5.005_5.005.03-5.diff.gz
perl-5.005_5.005.03-5.dsc perl-5.005_5.005.03-5_i386.changes perl-5.005_5.005.03-5_i386.deb
I am greatly in favor of the debconf-tiny solution. It really is the
Right Thing(tm) to do IMHO.

Consider my free time until the freeze now dedicated to boot-floppies.
If you want me to do something, just ask and give me some requirements.
