I dislike Plan B because of the epoch. I hate epochs. Once you get
one, you can never drop it. It also breaks dh-make-perl's dependency
resolver :/ (but it is already broken for DBI, because the module
version doesn't match the distribution (and package) version).
Yes, this is more emptional than technical reason, but I thought I'd
give it anyway.
If epochs can be avoided (by a slightly less ugly version like
1.610.90+is+1.609), I am all for Plan B. This will still break
dh-make-perl, but only until the next DBI release.
