We can't manage something like that, we must switch to perl-5.005 right

Developers can install perl-5.005, compile their package, upload them
and then remove perl-5.005 again until everything is upgraded.

Or, FYI :
~@p200$ dpkg -l perl-5.005
ii  perl-5.005      5.005.03-0.8   Larry Wall's Practical Extracting and Report
~@p200$ sudo apt-get -f install
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 106 not upgraded.

I simply edited by hand /var/lib/dpkg/status and remove the conflicts to perl
in 5.005 status information ... :) Simple but effective hack.
