Bug#794177: ITP: librecommended-perl -- Load recommended Perl modules on demand when available

* Package name    : librecommended-perl
  Version         : 0.003
  Upstream Author : David Golden <dagolden@cpan.org>
* URL             : https://metacpan.org/release/recommended

  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Load recommended Perl modules on demand when available

recommended gathers a list of recommended modules and versions and provides
means to check if they are available. It is a thin veneer around

There are two major benefits over using Module::Runtime directly:

  * Self-documents recommended modules together with versions at the top
    of your code, while still loading them on demand elsewhere.
  * Dies if a recommended module exists but fails to compile, but
    doesn't die if the module is missing or the version is insufficient.
    This is not something that Module::Runtime offers in a single

The package is a dependency of libdist-zilla-util-test-kentnl-perl
(#794175) and will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl
