I believe it both Replaces libmodern-perl (that means files in
libmodern-perl-perl overwrite ones in libmodern-perl) and Provides
libmodern-perl (ie, a virtual package). Depending on what is needed,
transitional empty binary packages may be needed as well. But if there
are no reverse deps we don't need to bother with any of that, simply
removing libmodern-perl should be good..
