Yeah, fair point. I've been building other packages that aren't
available, so have just been doing all the ones that aren't in Wheezy at
the same time.

Okay, this is interesting. That command does indeed work correctly for
me. However, if I then do cpan2deb DBIx-Class it picks the wrong version
So if I use '::' it uses the correct one, if I use '-' it uses the wrong
one. Is there a subtle difference between them that I'm not aware of?
