Yes I did not intend to NMU lintian since there are other things to fix.
But when you released 1.4, you could have added the | perl5 to the
depends line (it was after the beginning of the perl upgrade if I recall

You don't need to install perl-5.005 for correcting your packages ! You
just need to update the dependency line of your perl scripts. The only
persons who really need to install perl-5.005 are those who have
binary perl modules ...
And the day where most of the job for the perl upgrade will be done, if
lintian is not yet finished for the new perl, I'm willing to help you
since it's something that we really need. :)
