I want to propose that dh-make-perl is a bit less cautious when overwriting files in debian/. I am probably not the only one annoyed, or maybe I have missed something, so please state your opinion on the following. * when run with --make option (the default in the absebse of other command options), dh-make-perl aborts if debian/ directory already exists. I am not exactly sure why this is made, but the only thing one can do if she wants to use dh-make-perl is to move debian/ away and re-run --make. I propose that in --make mode, existing debian/ directory is moved to debian.bak/, removing the later if it already exists. If you run --make twice (why?), well, you lose the very original content. * when run with in --refresh mode, dh-make-perl creates backups of any files under debian/ it modifies (rules, control etc). This works fine, but if you refresh twice, the second run is aborted, as .bak files already exist. I propose that in --refresh mode, any existing backups of files to be overwritten are to be ignored.
