Yes, the binary perl modules that are already recompiled. That's where
apt-get upgrade is very good, upgrade will never install packages
that depend on packages that are not yet installed ...

That's possible, but maybe not better, instead of having people
complain because of the removal of perl dependent packages we
would have people complaining because of errors like this :
$ perl -MMD5 -e 'print "hello"'
