So, which is better, Perl's way or Debian's? (I don't know. :-)
Anyway, for those who are interested, I think it has to do with
/usr/lib/perl5/ExtUtils/Install.pm. Doing a "s/0444/0644/g" in that file
will solve the Lintian warning automagically, but I wonder if modifying
the upstream code to comply with this Debian policy is a good idea or not.
