Subject: Note caveats vs. Debian perl modules/dh-make-perl

CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb's documentation should make it clear how the debs it generates will interact with Debian's perl module packages: what conflicts may arise, what the caveats are, etc.
This is especially true of the mention of debian.pkgs.cpan.org.

The TODO mentions the assumptions made about the packaged code's license, but maybe this should be made more prominent.

One of the most important relationships a deb has is with aptitude (obviously.) If one could devise an automated set of tests for C::D::D to make sure it fits into aptitude and dpkg's database and can easily install and uninstall I think the module would be well on its way to providing a valuable service to users.

Tell me how and we'll make it happen. Even better, jeremiah, you probably want a commit-bit ;) -- Jos Boumans 'Real programmers use "cat > a.out"'

I don't really understand this -- have you looked at the tests that C::D::D already has? It tests install/uninstall, and it uses dpkg-buildpackage. Are there more tests you'd like to see? I was originally referring more to more abstract policy or convention violations, not straightforward package breakages (though of course those would be good to fix too; I just don't know of any).
