Eventually yes, but I've been delaying that request because we don't
have the full list of broken versions on all architectures yet.

Also, I'm not quite sure how the perl-base pre-dependency on libc6 and
the prospective Breaks entry would work together. I think this needs a
bit of testing first but I haven't found the time yet.

Anyway, it's on our radar as #630399.
