however the package description states that perl-modules should be
considered an internal implementation detail of perl and shoudn't be
depended upon.

With the perl 5.22 work in experimental, perl-modules is gone, and

this doesn't work with versioned depends.)

libmodule-build-perl is being removed from perl/perl-modules in any

This bug will become RC nearer the time of the perl 5.22 transition to
