OK, I will move libnet and data-dumper into base (surely we'll find a few
more cases of "package fragmentation" in the base system).

But I don't think moving perl into the base system is the right solution,
what's the point in having a perl-base package if I have to put the whole
perl in the base system? Do libnet and data-dumper work with perl-base?
Then dpkg-ftp, libnet and data-dumper should use "Depends: perl | perl-base".
