Sure but your work helped *a lot* for this. I just found those issues
a few weeks and decided that I would give this a push.

About perl, Brendan O'Dea mentioned me that he will anyway push the
suggestion to change upstream's changelog to UTf-8.....so even if this
is a false positive, it could be fixed at some time.

And at that time, because lintian warns about this, the number of
packages should be considerably lower.
