Actually, I was going to put the perl, perl-suid, and perl-debug
packages in a separate package. I'm also wondering if the same should
be done for perl-base since we don't want it to always be in
perl-5.004. We'll want to retire that at some point.
BTW, POSIX is added, the upgrade-alternatives lines for -thread are
automated, and we create a site_perl/i386-linux-thread.
Next is to build the dummy packages and put the big warning in the
postinst. I'd then like to fix some of the bugs before releasing it as
a package to master. I suspect that we'll want to wait until perl-5.004
is installed into the distribution before uploading the fake perl
packages. apt-get doesn't deal well with installed packages depending
on stuff that's still in Incoming.
