Bug#686021: tasksel: Should not need perl
The installed size of the base system has increased a lot between
squeeze and wheezy. One of the reasons is that tasksel now needs the
perl package, which thus gets installed by default even for the base.
That hurts the whole concept of perl-base vs perl a bit :)
Could tasksel people see with perl people what needs to be moved from
perl to perl-base so tasksel can need only the latter?
