Great! I think this will end the confusion of some users about the perl
and perl-base packages.

There is on other thing I always wanted to discuss here: IMHO we need a
policy for perl library/module packages. CPAN contains lots of very useful
modules which we should include in the Debian distribution.
IMHO we need a policy for naming of the packages, how many packages we
need (a module in one package?), and so on.
