So the plan is to drop the libplrpc-perl dependency for libdbi-perl.
But I want also to have some feedback from other pkg-perl group
members to see if there might be an issue with this for stable (and
For unstable we have already done the change, but there it was easier
as libplrpc-perl was already only a Suggests (note: no significant
code change afaics which justified the move from Depends -> Suggests).
So this might be safe, but I still would like to look closer to not
break something in the stable release.
After that libplrpc-perl could be dropped from the archive also for
the other suites.
