Bug#468651: ITP: libsub-wrappackage-perl -- add wrappers around subroutines in packages.

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Jaldhar H. Vyas" <jaldhar@debian.org>

* Package name    : libsub-wrappackage-perl
  Version         : 1.2
  Upstream Author : David Cantrell <david@cantrell.org.uk>

  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : add wrappers around subroutines in packages.

 This is mostly a wrapper around Damian Conway's Hook::LexWrap module
 The differences are:
  * no exporting
    We don't export a wrap() function, instead preferring to do all the
    magic when you "use" this module.  We just wrap named subroutines,
    no references.
  * the subs and packages arrayrefs
    Any subroutine mentioned in the "subs" parameter will be wrapped.
    Any packages mentioned in the "packages" parameter will have all their
    subroutines wrapped.
  * wrap_inherited
    In conjunction with the "packages" arrayref, this wraps all calls
    to inherited methods made through those packages.  If you call
    those methods directly in the superclass then they are not
  * parameters passed to your subs
    Your pre-wrapper will be passed the wrapped subroutine's name, and all the
    parameters to be passed to it.

I'm packaging this as it is a build-dependency to
