Comments from packager:

- I expect/hope to include classes from upstream for Java/PHP/C++ before too long, and maybe collect some others.

- I'm not 100% sure about the versioning. It might make sense for this
  to be a native package (as e.g. libcatalyst-modules-perl which it is
  modelled on).

- The base package ITP BTS #515505.
