Agreed, this sound nice.

Right, adding "Testsuite: autopkgtest-auto-perl" (or however it will
be called) sounds like a nice option to say "run the default pkg-perl
tests" without having to maintain d/t/control files (or inventing the
include syntax).

The only downside might be that it leaves the burden of maintaining
the test definition to the autopkgtest maintainers on our request;
but if that's ok for you guys, I'm fine with it as well :)
