You're right, "depends-on-essential-package-without-using-version" it is.
Perhaps the best would be to Depend on "${perl:Depends}". For "jarwrapper" it 
expands to empty string. 

Also "${perl:Depends}" is missing from javahelper's Depends where (if added) 
it expands to "perl". I'll add "${perl:Depends}" to Depends of javahelper as 
the latter is actually using Perl scripts.

All the best,
 Dmitry Smirnov.
