Yes, I think this should be done.  We have the same problem with some
Python packages.

Ideally, we would find a way to do without propagation as it has some
ugly effects, but I’m not sure if this is possible in Perl.  There were
some discussions about fixing this is Python (see the mailing list
archives) but I must admit to being not knowledgeable enough about
Python to confidently propose a patch.
