Given an alternate option I'd really rather not do this. It seems
fragile at best, disasterous at worst.
Given the recent freeze announcement, I'd suggest that regardless of
what other fixes are made, a good first step would be to get a fixed
doc-base (i.e. one that works with the current stable perl-base only)
package into stable-proposed-updates *now*.
If nothing else, this reduces the size of the problem if there's a point
release prior to sarge.
