Well, not exactly, because either way the packages as is will not rebuild, if 
you unlink perl-devel from perl.  The only way I would be _really_ happy is 
if all our perl packages picked up this dep change and were rebuilt so that 
anybody rebuilding our shipped srpms can do so without issue.  If I can't get 
that...  then yeah, I think we should force the addition of perl-devel into 
specs by not making it available in the buildroot.  Of course I may be voted
