Oh, my comment was in response to gregor's doubts about his usage of
the libdpkg-perl module, and my reply was intended to clarify just
that, because there's modules in libdpkg-perl which are not public nor
stable yet, for example. I don't know anything about the expectactions
one should assume from libparse-debcontrol-perl (although I'd guess
those are pretty similar given the versioning).
