I sense some agitation in you, regarding this issue. There is no need for
agitation: it is your package, if you want to tag the bugreport as
wontfix, then it is your choice entirely.
However, you state in /usr/share/dh-make-perl/rules.xs, for example:
# This debian/rules file is provided as a template for normal perl
# packages. It was created by Marc Brockschmidt <firstname.lastname@example.org> for
# the Debian Perl Group (http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/) but may
# be used freely wherever it is useful.
The above had me thinking you intended this as a DPG tool. Thinking our
modules should be thoroughly tested before upload, I filed the wishlist
bugreport. Please still regard this as one of my "wishes" that I place on
