The mandatory dependency on libparse-edid-perl is overkill: the agent 
works perfectly without it. And using a mandatory dependency for the 
first one, and an optional dependency on the other is incoherent 
moreover, as both are needed actually.

That's wrong. Just try to run 'perl Makefile.PL'.

That's juste one option among others. You can perfectly install packaged 
Perl dependencies.
