Gunnar, there has been also recommendations to not use it, both inside
and outside pkg-perl. In fact, I'm upgrading 4 to 5 lately, mostly to
follow the idea that dh6 doesn't give us any benefit and makes like
harder for backporters. I think Ganneff wrote something about it
I guess we should discuss this and settle on something (and maybe put
it in policy?)... Yes, I'm a consistency freak :)
