Just an update-
I am told by David Golden (who works with Perl's toolchain and is
familiar with the perl package's direction going forward) that
JSON::PP is becoming a core module, and part of that transition
required them to split it away from the JSON package.
Subsequently, he informed me that the backportPP stuff is meant as a
transitional thing, and will not work properly for many programs. I
have therefore bumped the dependency on libjson-pp-perl from a
Suggests to Depends. However, at present, libjson-pp-perl has not
been accepted into the archive by the ftp-masters.
Once libjson-pp-perl is accepted, an upgrade will pull in libjson-perl
2.50-2, which will install libjson-pp-perl, thus un-breaking your

to an older version of libjson-perl.
I am sorry about the breakage and have filed a bug against
