Wouldn't this problem be solved by moving the contents of perl to, e.g.,
perl-bin, making perl a dummy package, and the following relations:

Package: perl
Depends: perl-bin, perl-modules

Package: perl-bin

Package: perl-modules
Depends: perl-bin (= ${Source-Version})


But this solution seems so simple that I must be missing something.

Best,
Michael
