  I know I suggested something similar earlier, but would this really work?
You'd have to restart the apt frontend in order to get the needed effect,
even if it correctly upgraded itself.
  Or am I missing something?  (eg..would it just hold back the perl upgrade
and require two runs instead of doing something really nasty like it does
now? :) )
