Alternatively, as hinted by the INSTALL file, one can use 'enc2xs -C'
to include the module in /usr/lib/perl/5.12/Encode/ConfigLocal.pm,
making just 'use Encode' work.
Not sure if that should be done by the libencode-imaputf7-perl postinst
script. At the very least, /usr/lib/ looks to me like a wrong place for
the generated file in that case - but that's in the domain of the 'perl'
package, which provides enc2xs.
Possibly this needs some more plumbing in the 'perl' package first.
However, this is the first request I'm aware of for automatically updating
the list of encodings supported by Encode at package installation time,
so it looks like the demand isn't too high.
Cc'ing perl at packages.d.o. Thoughts are welcome.
