Indeed, there are some pkg-perl specifics in our tools, but yes, some
are probably useful for others, and in Debian we have a long
tradition of duplicating work :/

From a perl point of view: We have often been a bit slow and careful
not to switch to a new debhelper compat level too early, especially
when there are no gains for our type of packages.

With debhelper 13 there are some nice improvements, so it makes sense
to use it IMO.
