Not sure if we do, but upstream modules certainly do. I should've
mentioned that this package is needed for MojoMojo (libmojomojo-perl)
currently, though I have been working with upstream so it will no
longer be a hard dependency in future releases.
At this point, I'm fine whether or not the ftp-master accepts it. I
have no personal attachment to this module, so I have no problem
withdrawing the ITP if enough people think I should do so.
