Package: libclass-isa-perl
Version: 0.36-2
Severity: important

Hello Debian Perl Group,

There is a circular dependency between libclass-isa-perl, libswitch-perl, perl and perl-modules:

libclass-isa-perl 	:Depends: perl
libswitch-perl 	        :Depends: perl, perl-modules
perl 	                :Depends: perl-modules (>= 5.14.2-3)
perl-modules 	        :Depends: perl (>= 5.14.2-1), libswitch-perl, libclass-isa-perl

Complex circular dependencies are known to cause problems during upgrade, so we
should try to get rid of them.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
