AFAIS, this change seems to break building of any perl-module.

=> All perl modules' spec files from now on would require to change all
perl-modules to "BuildRequire: perl-devel" - 
Are you seriously wanting this?

As this thing doesn't seem to be baked yet[1], and as I don't want to
see FE-6 and FE-5 being locked out from updates, for now, I will ignore
this issue on rawhide, i.e. you will likely see broken EVRs between
rawhide and older FE, on my perl-modules, soon.


[1] Why is such a massive change being introduced such kind of late in a
release cycle? IMO, it's way to late, and should be postponed to F8 once
things have been sorted out.
