I dislike Plan B because of the epoch. I hate epochs. Once you get 
one, you can never drop it. It also breaks dh-make-perl's dependency 
resolver :/ (but it is already broken for DBI, because the module 
version doesn't match the distribution (and package) version).

Yes, this is more emptional than technical reason, but I thought I'd 
give it anyway.

If epochs can be avoided (by a slightly less ugly version like 
1.610.90+is+1.609), I am all for Plan B. This will still break 
dh-make-perl, but only until the next DBI release.
