Please mention this in the package description. For instance,
this is what I put in podlators-perl:
Note that the Perl core distribution (supplied in the perl package)
already includes older versions of these modules and scripts. Please
depend on this package only if you specifically need the newer
features, for instance the improved UTF-8 support.
Also see #497130, which led to the removal of the previous incarnation
of libfile-temp-perl (at version 0.20).
