Sorry, I'm not that involved in Perl and somehow assumed that the
package version has some relation to the module version

It seems my assumption is not that wrong:

dpkg -L libparse-debcontrol-perl|grep 'DebControl\.pm'|xargs grep VERSION
use vars qw($VERSION);
$VERSION = '2.005';

So your conclusion from module version >= 1.00 to stability of API
remains unclear to me because both look somehow stable.  As I have
written in my example test code:  It does not really matter which one
we prefer - both are working perfectly fine.  I'll leave the final
decision to the maintainer of uscan code who needs to accept the patch.

Kind regards
