In the case where upstream also have a rather well structured
dependency list that is prone to change ( ie: perl modules ) I've
found it beneficial to keep the dependencies in the same order as they
Makes it much easier to check later and makes it much easier to notice
when they add a dependency
perl -e "print substr( \"edrgmaM SPA NOcomil.ic\\@tfrken\", \$_ * 3,
3 ) for ( 9,8,0,7,1,6,5,4,3,2 );"
