Isn't needed for many libraries, and yes, if we all work in this, we
can improve Arch perl stuff and save some mb on our mirrors (and make
our perl users happy), I will do the rebuild this night, and tomorrow
or weekend (sometimes I need to work or sleep) I hope to have done
with the list of packages that are needed to be rebuilt, so, we can go
filtering that list and converting some packages to any.
