Please be very careful with uploads of libtext-iconv-perl it is an
important package, changes may well affect debconf-i18n which depends
on libtext-iconv-perl. In particular, if any new version introduces an
API change, however small, you should warn the debconf maintainers
before uploading. If not you could end up with a _lot_ of unhappy
Debian users.

Thanks for taking this on,
