> binary package libparse-pidl-perl is built from source package samba,
however its version number (0.02, as in pidl/lib/Parse/Pidl.pm in unstable
as of now) is different from the source package (4.9.4). This might result
in confusion:
> andrius at amalas:~$ dpkg -s libparse-pidl-perl | grep ^Version
> Version: 2:4.9.4+dfsg-1
> andrius at amalas:~$ perl -le 'use Parse::Pidl; print $Parse::Pidl::VERSION'
> 0.02
> Moreover, this mismatch causes nontrivial translation of CPAN
dependencies (where the most recent version is 0.02) to Debian ones. A
solution would be to split off the source of libparse-pidl-perl from samba
to preserve the upstream's version number.

Is this a real concern or is this theory? Because this package has not so
much rdeps...

Also, this will need an epoch which breaks bijectivity.
