I started generating a list of packages that
1) depend or pre-depend on perlapi-5.10.*
2) are in sync between testing and sid (as a first step, to not block
stuff that could still migrate on its own)
ATM that gives 4164 binNMUs for 392 source packages
I hadn't planned on making it multiple rounds, hoping that
BD-Uninstallable checks would sort it all out for me, but if you can
send me your lists and double check mine that would be great.
