perl-modules -> perl could be demoted to Recommends, libstdc++6-4.4-dev
-> g++-4.4 likewise. Neither package provides functionality on its own
that breaks if the other package is not installed, rather, they'd just
be dead weight without the other (i.e. an excellent candidate for a
mechanism that hides them in the package manager), but that is not a
criterion for Depends.
