version numbers on virtual packages
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I was going to change perl to perl5 think weekend and just provide the
virtual package perl. This would close a bug filed by Brian White who
is worried about Perl6. While I was thinking about this during builds
of Perl, I realized that I can't do that right now. The problem? dpkg
doesn't support versions on virtual packages. Too many things depend on
a specific version of Perl to just tell people to fix things up.
What does everyone else think?
