A lot of my generated modules are depending on things like "libio-perl", "libextutils-makemaker-perl", etc, even though they don't need to. A check for "module_is_supplied_with_perl_core" could help prevent this.

one other note -- I wanted to override this logic in CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb (since I have an immediate need), but I can't do that easily because since prepare() is a huge method that does a bunch of other stuff. you should consider moving the whole prereqs() loop into a method or two, eg; sub prepare { {.....} my @depends = $self->prereqs; {.....} } sub prereqs { my $self = shift; my $prereqs = $self->status->prereqs; my @depends; for my $prereq ( sort keys %$prereqs ) { push(@depends, $self->prereq_depends($prereq)); } return @depends; } sub prereq_depends { {.....} } actually, it'd be helpful to break most of down into smaller bits since there's often "weird" packages that need special treatment to debianize (like Crypt::IDEA)...
