That's an idea, too.

Okay, but how will you test that perl builds for all architectures ?
Manually ? Or wll you ask the porters to test for you ?

As long as you keep the changes files when moving/linking the packages,
that's ok with me. :-)

Great, when you send your mail to d-d-a, please inform the maintainers of
that NMU party explaining that anyone that hasn't provided an updated
package during the two weeks, will be NMUed without notification unless
he publicly expressed on debian-perl that he will take care of the
package himself a little later.
